Four Australian volunteers have arrived on Rarotonga to help out at the Esther Honey Foundation (EHF).

The new members of the Esther Honey team – vets Shelley Wiltshire and Adrian Anderson, vet nurse Lydia Champ and volunteer Bec Rosel – arrived last Saturday. Wiltshire, Champ and Rosel will be on the island for two weeks, while Anderson will be volunteering for three months. The vets will be performing surgery and creating medication plans as well as helping out in a variety of other areas. Champ will be assisting with the animal’s care with help from Rosel – a personal trainer who decided to donate her time to the cause. Tasks she might undertake include feeding, walking or cleaning the animals and administering parasite treatments, to leave the vets with more time for diagnosis and surgeries.
