Help for Tonga
The UK has announced plans to send vital humanitarian aid to Tonga, helping the island recover from the devastating tsunami.
- Our thoughts are with those caught up in the appalling devastation and loss of life caused by the tsunami in Tonga.
- The Royal Navy has redeployed HMS Spey and,\ working with Australia, the UK is also sending 17 pallets of aid supplies to Tonga aboard the Royal Australian Navy’s HMAS Adelaide. This vital aid will deliver medical support, tents and tools to aid the recovery efforts.
- Britain is working closely with our Australian and New Zealand allies to assist and stand ready to further support our long-standing Commonwealth partner as it recovers from this devastating natural disaster.
