"All the community members can now have access to clean water. We will also use the tanks to store water and prepare for future drought.” - Selita, Tonga
The islands of Tonga are some of the most susceptible in the world to natural disasters such as drought and cyclones – threats that are often exacerbated by climate change. But the communities who live in these areas are building water tanks so they always have access to clean water, even in times of shortage.
Your gift of $4,150 will help provide a community with a rain water tank so they can have clean, safe drinking water. These tanks are designed to better withstand a cyclone, providing greater security to the community as they work to adapt to the effects of climate change and reduce the risks they face from natural disasters.
