Vavaʻu families receive relief supplies from New Zealand

The relief supplies from New Zealand to help and support victims of Cyclone Winston in Vavaʻu had arrived and were distributed at the Puatalefusi wharf on Monday.

The Tongan born and speaker New Zealand MP Jenny Salesa was in Vava‘u to receive the relief supplies and she met with families and kāinga who the supplies were sent to.

The Vavaʻu people and their supporters in New Zealand filled three containers with load of many items of non-perishable food and sent them on the Olo Mana.

The Go Pacific Services and Managing Director Sam Paea provided transport, forklift, manpower to load the three containers, storage and freight services at their warehouse at 20 Weka street Otahuhu.

The relief supply assistance was initiated by Vavaʻu Relief Committee in New Zealand and the Go Pacific Services as well the Office of the MP.

Tropical Cyclone Winston destroyed about 230 homes in Vavaʻu on February 19 and extensively damaged most of the trees and crops in the islands.
