Tonga care packages

Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium to be a drop off centre for Tonga care packages

Labour MP and Tongan-born Jenny Salesa said a drop-off point for the packages would be established at Mt Smart Stadium.

Tonga was hit by a tsunami following a large eruption of the Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha’apai underwater volcano on Saturday.

Communication with Tonga has been limited due to power cuts and an undersea communications cable that was impacted.

The Aotearoa Tonga Relief Committee has been created to help families in New Zealand send care packages and support to their families back home in Tonga.
