This week a team of health workers will begin work preparing and planning the agenda for its floating health clinic to serve those people living in the more remote parts of Tonga.

The group is called Sea Mercy. And using a large sailing catamaran, named the "Rebelle", as its base, it will take volunteer workers to parts of Tonga which don't get access to specialist health services.

Presenter: Geraldine Coutts

Richard Hackett, founder and President of Sea Mercy.
