Tonga. Emergency contribution of the Italian Cooperation following the eruption of the submarine volcano and the related tsunami.

The Italian Cooperation has provided a contribution of 100,000 euros to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRCS) in response to the emergency caused by the eruption of the Tonga Hunga Ha’apai volcano in Tonga and the related tsunami.

The Italian funding will allow the organization to support the activities of the Tongan Red Cross, mainly in the so-called WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene), first reception and assistance and protection sectors. With this bilateral initiative, which is added to the Italian contributions to the United Nations Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), active in Tonga, Italy intends to give a tangible sign of closeness to the most vulnerable population of the island in this particularly difficult moment.
