Tonga Volcano Emergency Appeal

The recent eruption in Tonga of an undersea volcano, triggered a tsunami that has caused damage to infrastructure, contamination of water and damage and destruction to food crops in Tonga.   

You can help us respond to some of the most vulnerable families struggling for clean water and emergency food supplies.


What’s happening in Tonga?

  • A large eruption of Hunga Tonga–Hunga Haʻapai volcano on January 15, 2022, has caused ash fall and triggered a tsunami. 

  • Ashfall has likely contaminated water supplies, damaged or destroyed food crops, and affected air quality.
