Nafanua II and its crew departed Samoa on Tuesday evening 16 June 2020 transporting a team of two doctors and two nurses to assist with a Humanitarian effort in Tokelau. Samoan Government received a request from Tokelau for assistance to carry out a medical operation for a critically ill patient.
The successful medical operation was conducted for 6 hours on Wednesday 17 June 2020. Nafanua II and its crew with our Samoan Health Officials returned on Thursday and arrived early this morning Friday 19 June 2020.
