Tonga Needs You Now

Wednesday 14/02/2018

Tonga has been smashed and needs your help now.  Water, hygiene, shelter, recovery – the Red Cross knows what’s needed where.  There are support pages now operating for a range of communities and church groups.  Many areas of Tongatapu are starting from scratch and help is needed right now. Cyclone Gita has done her worst.  It’s time for us to do our best.

Council for International Development humanitarian coordinator Nik Rilkoff says, "The urge may be to donate food or clothing, but please don't. Sixty percent of unrequested goods sent in emergencies are not needed, and end up sitting in containers on wharves long after the disaster recovery phase is over."

So please donate cash to
