Volcano eruptions and tsumani waves impact lives, properties and resources



Thank you for your prayers for the Kingdom of Tonga, including the staff and radio hosts at the radio station.

Sadly, three people are so far confirmed dead from the main island of Tongatapu and also from Mango Island and Numuka Island.

The Tongan Government has called the events an “unprecedented disaster” . 

Praise God that Willy Florian, his family and the radio hosts are safe and the radio station is still broadcasting messages of hope through Jesus on 93.1FM for as long a power is available.

However the thick ash-fall and salt water has contaminated all the water catchments and crop plantations. Everyone is wearing a mask when outdoors, not because of Covid (as Tonga is still Covid-free) but because of the ash dust in the atmosphere.


New Zealand and Australian defence forces have already arrived at the capital Nuku’alofa with initial relief supplies – which will be prioritised for distribution to the most needy areas and islands.

A Tonga patrol vessel has already delivered water, food and tents to residents of Mango island – where all homes have been destroyed – and has just undertaken a further trip with another health team, more resources and emergency responders to Mango, Fonoifua and Nomuka islands.

Your donation, of any amount, will help provide much needed assistance for Willy’s family and the radio hosts (who are volunteers) – and also through them to those in greatest need within the community.
