“We are pleased to back the museum in continuing to exhibit and display the exciting and meaningful collection of art and history of Vanuatu,” says BSP Santo Branch Manager Edwige Wensi when presenting the cheque.

“We remained a proud supporter to the museum in driving tourism and culture by promoting with positive messages in the country,” she added.

Chairman of the Museum Association’s board Bradley Wood thanked BSP for the generous support in continuing to build and strengthen its relationship with the community.

“We are very pleased to have BSP continue to support the project in Luganville.

“The support is helping us developing an important cultural asset for the people of Vanuatu. We appreciate the re-signing of the support offered by the bank and ensure to continue partnership in developing the history of Vanuatu,” said Mr Wood.

Recently, the office had lost one of their Hero’s, Mr. Alma Wensi, late husband of Mrs. Edwige Wensi, Bank Manager of BSP Santo Branch, who was passionate about getting many locals and visitors to visit the mini-museum at Unity Park, Luganville Santo and experiencing an eye-opener education awareness about many of the pacific war tales.

The support is also in memory of Mr Wensi’s legacy for strengthening and building community relations and preserving history for future generations.
