Tonga tsunami relief

15 January 2022 saw the eruption of Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha’apai volcano, triggering tsunami waves of up to 15m which struck the west coast of Tongatapu, ‘Eua and Ha’apai. The Grand Priory of New Zealand committed the sum of NZD 25,000 [eq. EUR 11,470] to support the people of Tonga; while an international call was made through the Office of the Grand Hospitaller for other jurisdictions to support this assistance. To the jurisdiction’s donation, a further EUR 20,000 were pledged from the Grand Hospitaller's Fund; and EUR 1,000 were pledged by the Grand Priory of the Maltese Islands.
