This donation was facilitated by DFAT and the Australian Defence Force as part of Operation Tonga Assist 2022. The supplies include first aid kits and state of the art drones so that even those who are cut off from regular access routes can get the help they need.

The goods were delivered via a Royal Australian Air Force C-17A Globemaster III aircraft.

The Australian Defence Force is supporting the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT)-led effort to support the Government of Tonga following the eruption of Tonga’s Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai underwater volcano on 15 January.
