POPUA, TONGA – With the rainy season approaching, Habitat for Humanity is celebrating the first of many cyclone-resistant homes built in Tonga today, together with homeowners the Taufa family, and project partners the Kingdom of Tonga, Tonga Development Bank and Caritas Tonga.
Going on a Global Village build to the Pacific this year was incredible!
Our team was in Samoa for two weeks from the 23rd of August to 3rd of September, during which we worked on 8 – 9 homes alongside local builders and the families. They were very friendly and great to work alongside. We stayed at the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) site in Apia. Accommodation was basic but comfortable with air conditioned rooms, and the work sites were all 15 minutes to an hour’s drive from our accommodation. The team at ADRA were really cheerful and very welcoming!
