Order of Malta Australia


Aid to Tonga from the Order of Malta received by Queen


The shipping container of aid to the people of the Island of Atata, has been received by the Queen of Tonga to be distributed to the villages of Ha’atafu, Kanokupolu, Ha’akili, Kolovai, Ha’avakatolo and Fo’ui.
Following the volcanic eruption and subsequent tsunami earlier this year, the Order of Malta sponsored a shipping container to transport items that have been collected by the Catholic Tonga community in Sydney and also arranged for 200 of our Care packs (containing anti-bacterial wipes, masks, socks, dental care items and soaps) and rosary beads, nappies and female sanitary items for inclusion in the shipment.
The Order of Malta will continue to support our neighbours and friends in Tonga during their recovery effort.
