Tropical Cyclone Pam has been called the worst natural disaster in living memory. Here are the photos you need to see and what you can do to help.

Tropical Cyclone Pam has left a path of destruction through Vanuatu, killing at least eight people and leaving many many men, women and children without food, medical aide and shelter.

Pam was a category five cyclone when it struck the South Pacific from Wednesday, March 11 and was one of the strongest cyclones ever experienced within the region.

The United Nations says Tropical Cyclone Pam is likely to be the worst natural disaster the South Pacific has seen. It has been calculated that at least nine nations have experienced some level of devastation including Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Kiribati, Fiji, Tuvalu, and Papua New Guinea.

Oxfam relief workers said up to 90 per cent of Vanuatu’s capital, Port Vila, had been seriously damaged and entire communities are said to have been blown away.
