Home Projects Past Projects Container for Ha'apai

Jun 2014 - Sep 2014

Christchurch, New Zealand


Following the destruction of Tropical Cyclone Ian, the Ha'apai group of islands are in dire need of resources to rebuild their communities. 13 of the 17 primary and secondary schools across this group of islands suffered significant damage from this event and all are in need of resources to replace those that were lost or destroyed.

EcoCARE is responding to this need by collaborating with the Tongan Ministry of Education to identify what items are most needed and collecting these from schools and companies around New Zealand. We would appreciate any member of the public with information on organisations that might be able to donate educational resources for this cause or have the ability to donate items themselves getting in touch with us. Since launching this post-cyclone response project, we have sent 2 containers of educational resources to Ha'apai but much more work needs to be done to make sure our contribution to the re-resourcing of schools in Ha'apai is as significant as possible.
