Pacific Partnership visits Pohnpei

Kicking off its second visit of Pacific Partnership earlier last week, on June 25th, Federated States of Micronesia Vice President Yosiwo George visited three public schools in Kitti and Madolenihmw where the partnership mission is currently conducting assistance and support.

Reflecting the longstanding relations between the United States and the FSM, the Pacific-Partnership mission that begun earlier last week, have been providing medical, dental, veterinarian care and infrastructure development projects at school grounds where military personnel and volunteers are repairing and renovating school facilities.

In addition to the joint effort in humanitarian assistance, a team of medical, dental, engineering and veterinary personnel and NGO volunteers are working collectively together with local
professionals in support of the mission’s objectives. The USNS Millinocket vessel that deployed from Pearl Harbor late May, has been scheduled for a two-week mission visit in Pohnpei, which arrived in the host nation on June 21.

Along with US Ambassador Doria Rosen, Vice President George thanked the engineering personnel at Lukop Elementary School and Rohi Elementary School and the team of medical professionals at Madolenihmw High School for providing treatment and medical aid. The Vice President expressed his gratitude and appreciation for the involvement and humanitarian outreach being provided to the FSM.
