Tonga Volcano and Tsunami Disaster - Rotary Response

$6,881 donated
Given by 73 generous donors in one year

Supporting the most disadvantaged communities with proven capability when disaster strikes.


Rotary New Zealand has a long association with trusted partners in Tonga. The effects of the Volcano Eruption and Tsunami on January 15th will be far reaching, certainly months, possibly years. Satellite images showed a plume of ash, steam and gas rising like a mushroom above the Pacific waters, with a sonic boom heard as far away as the United States. It sent tsunami waves crashing across the shores of Tonga with people rushing to higher ground.

We work with trusted partners e.g. MFAT Rotary Club of Nuku’alofa, Tonga Community Development Trust , MORDI

and the Tonga Disaster Management Office

The funds will go to trusted partner organisations who in turn will use them to purchase and distribute essential services to the wider community.
