Help Rebuild Tonga
Digicel Tonga, the country’s only digital operator, presented $250,000 TOP to the Tonga Red Cross to help with the rehabilitation works in Tonga for communities where homes were destroyed in the Hunga Tonga–Hunga Ha'apai eruption and tsunami.
The Digicel team started its community outreach by visiting homes that were affected in Ha’atafu, Kanokupolu, ‘Ahau, Sopu, Popua and Patangata with food packs and water after the eruption and tsunami on January 15th. The team also visited Holty’s Hideaway, Vakaloa Beach Resort, Liku’alofa Beach Resort, Heilala Lodge, Fafa Island Resort, Pangaimotu Island Resort, Ha’atafu Beach Resort and Royal Sunset Beach Resort to donate $8500 TOP to each resort to help with the rebuild of their businesses.
The cash donation to Tonga Red Cross will aid the Nomuka and Tungua communities in the rebuilding of homes on the southern island of Ha’apai.
Digicel Tonga CEO, Anthony Seuseu, said; “Digicel is blessed as a team and as an organization to be involved in giving back to the community. Digicel’s success over the last 14 years in the Kingdom is a result of the support of the Tongan people, who are our loyal customers. In this time of need, it’s our turn to give back and help Tonga rebuild in every way we can.”
