They need ladders, water blasters and water vacuums to clean-up the ash and water residue left from the volcanic eruption and resulting tsunami.
Next week, we will be sending these items to Tonga. If you would like to help, we are accepting donations to go toward these goods.
Any extra money raised will be donated to the NZCTU - Together Tonga assistance fund.

We realise that not everyone can afford to contribute and that many of you have already shown incredible kindness and generosity during this time.
Tonga and their people will be facing significant challenges in the coming days, weeks, months and years. But they will rebuild, and we will be there to help in whatever way we can.
We ask instead that you continue to reach out to your Tongan friends, colleagues and neighbours, and ask them how you can support them.
