Tonga recovery appeal

The volcanic eruption and tsunami that rocked Tonga tore apart homes and lives. As the clean-up continues, we’re supporting the Tongan community to recover for a bright new future.

Why we need your help

On 15 January, the Hunga Tonga–Hunga Haʻapai volcano off the coast of Tonga erupted – sending an ash cloud 18km into the sky and tsunami waves that have caused devastation across the nation’s largest island, Tongatapu.

More than 12,000 households have been affected, with every agricultural sector in the country suffering substantial losses and water supplies being contaminated by ashfall and saltwater.

The people of Tonga are in desperate need of emergency shelter, food, safe drinking water, toilets and other basic essentials.
