#TAGTONGA welcomes your donations to the Paea Family in Ha’atafu rebuilding their home and business in these difficult times.Auckland
Affirming Works (AW) in NZ are devastated by a recent cyclone that dramatically hit the home of the Burling and Paea Family on the western side of Tonga otherwise known too many as the Ha’atafu Beach Resort.
Ha'atafu Beach Resort now without guests has been terribly damaged and it's owners are trying to rebuild itself in the hope that it will be able to open doors again soon. Ha’atafu Beach Resort in Hihifo (Westside) of Tongatapu celebrated 40 years of business in Tonga in 2019. It is a small family-owned business who has served the nation in providing employment and promoting sustainability through it's platform tourism in Tonga.
Just like many other nations, the Kingdom of Tonga has been in lockdown to initially prepare for the initial concerns that the COVID-19 virus may have on the island. Despite the island of Tonga being COVID-19 free, the consequences on the economy with the world borders being closed and recently the effects of cyclone Harold has caused our people residing in the islands to become more vulnerable.
TAGTONGA was set up in 2018 as a way of our own diaspora of Pacific people and friends giving directly to their family and friends in our island nations, recently with the measles epidemic, we allowed for New Zealanders to TAGSAMOA. This time Affirming Works (AW)have decided to reactivate their TAGTONGA service to allow friends and family to give to loved ones in the Kingdom of Tonga.
