Our SHIP

Serving the isolated Pacific Islands

MV YWAM KOHA

A catalyst to help isolated island communities thrive.

This strong and versatile New Zealand-based vessel is uniquely designed to carry both people and cargo to remote island communities. Custom built shipping containers, on the ship’s deck, can serve as dental, medical, surgical, pharmaceutical, or classroom facilities. Koha is a Māori word for “gift”. The ship was given as a gift to Youth With A Mission and is now preparing to bring the gift of practical hope and healing to the Pacific islands.
