  • Communities in Tonga will require humanitarian assistance through at least mid-2022, relief actors report. Recent assessments conducted by the World Bank indicate that agriculture, food, livelihood, protection, shelter, and WASH assistance remain priority needs across Tonga.

  • Rapid transmission of COVID-19 prompts widespread restrictions, hindering relief actors’ ability to deliver critical humanitarian assistance.

  • USAID/BHA partners CARE and FAO commence agriculture, shelter, and WASH support for affected populations across Tonga, particularly on ‘Eua Island and in the Tongatapu and Ha’apai island groups.
