Since their arrival in the early 1990s, Australian Sisters of the Good Samaritan have become increasingly attuned to the distinct challenges facing Kiribati, a remote nation of 33 low-lying coral atolls in the Pacific Ocean, and together with their I-Kiribati sisters, they are responding where they can.

Originally from north Queensland, Marella Rebgetz first lived in Kiribati from 2000 until 2002 before returning in 2008. She brings vital skills and experience as a water engineer to a country very vulnerable to climate change.
