Emergency: Tonga

On 12 February, Tropical Cyclone Gita devastated communities across Tonga. This was the strongest storm the country had seen in 60 years, and thousands of families lost their homes and their entire livelihoods.

Shelter, clean water and food are still major concerns for the people of Tonga. Many families are still homeless, having lost everything except the clothes on their back. Farms were completely destroyed and we are concerned that food supplies are running low. Access to clean water is still a challenge as much of the water supply has been destroyed or contaminated.

With a storm this big, communities that have been badly impacted will need our support to recover and begin to rebuild their homes and livelihoods. Please give generously to help the people of Tonga today.
