Birthday presents for Tonga

$1,930 donated
Given by 19 generous donors in 4 weeks

Supporting freshwater recovery and development aid for Tonga after the devastating eruption and tsunamis.


You may know that in 1970 I spent a year as a VSA school leaver volunteer in Tonga. Since then Tonga has continued to be a very significant part of my life.

As today is my significant birthday (70) and I personally don't want or need any gifts, I thought that would be a chance for you to gift a little to the recovery efforts in Tonga. Caritas Aotearoa is already funding Caritas Tonga especially in providing freshwater projects for villages.

Please consider giving a little to this cause as a birthday gift.

Malo 'aupito G. Thank you for your generous donation for Tonga. It's a hard life for people on the island right now and tough for their families overseas.

Malo e lelei Alison and Eddie. Thank you very much for your generous donation. It certainly is a worthy cause and now Tonga have their first outbreak of Covid to cope with. Must catch up sometime soon to celebrate all birthdays. They can take a whole year to complete. 'Ofa atu. John

Malo e lelei Bridget & Jon. Thank you very much for your generous donation to a cause close to my heart. Tonga are certainly having a hard time of it at the moment with the outbreak of Covid on top of the tsunami. I really appreciate your friendship and your generosity. I look forward to our next catch up, maybe a Zoom one to start with. 'Ofa atu. John
