Support for Tonga

Tropical Cyclone Gita hit Tonga hard on Monday night, 12 February, ripping roofs from houses and causing widespread flooding. It is estimated that the category 4 cyclone destroyed 75% of homes in the country's capital, Nuku’alofa. With winds exceeding 230 km/hour, TC Gita is the strongest storm to hit Tonga in 60 years and early reports indicate that it has caused substantial damage to many communities.

“We are watching, praying and hoping with the Methodist Church in Fiji that their island nation is spared from another severe cyclone so soon after Cyclone Winston," says UnitingWorld National Director Dr Sureka Goringe.

UnitingWorld has launched an appeal to support communities affected by TC Gita.

Find out more, or give online, here.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Tonga and those who have connections to the country.
