Fundraising for supplies to send to our family in Ha’apai following the eruption/tsunami.

Auckland

Following the massive volcanic eruption and tsunami in Tonga recently, we are looking to raise a bit of money to send supplies through to Pano’s mum and extended family, once we eventually make contact with them and find out what they need. We are very grateful to all those who have reached out and offered help. Any small contribution is greatly appreciated!!

Pano’s family live on Lifuka, which is the main Island of the Ha’apai group. We sadly still haven’t yet had any direct contact with the family after 9 days, but will update here as we know more.

Drums sent and contact made!  8 February 2022

Thanks to all your amazing contributions, a total of 10 drums full of food have been sent to Ha’apai and Tongatapu. The shipping costs were kindly donated for free, so your money could be spent entirely on supplies.

Pano has also finally made contact with his family. A call to his 2 sisters in Tongatapu, and his mum and brothers in Ha’apai. Lots of tears and stories about the eruption and waves washing ashore.

Thanks for everything everyone!
