As you will all be aware, the effects of the volcano eruption and tsunami on January 15th 2022, have had a devastating impact on the communities of Tonga, and these will be significant for months.
IWNZ is participating in the Rotary New Zealand World Community Service support appeal.
They have had direct communication with the official sources in Tonga and confirm that the 538 Emergency response Kits (ERKs) in Tonga have all been distributed and are in use.
The main issues appear to be through ash fall, getting roofs cleared, and reducing water supply contamination risks. Support from this appeal will go directly to assist with the efforts to provide water purification supplies that are in desperate need.
We will be collecting funds directly through IWNZ bank account and then make a lump sum donation to the Rotary appeal.
Individuals, please donate to your Club Accounts. Club Treasurers, please deposit Club funds to IWNZ account By Friday 11th February.
If you would like to donate directly to the IWNZ appeal and do not have a Club account to donate to, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
