Tonga Project - Essentials of Humanitarian Practice Training Course

PP Robert Fisher has provided an update on the Corporate Member RedR Tonga project.       

The project, which was supported by our Corporate Member RedR and partly funded by Rotary Melbourne ($15,000), with significant additional contributions from the Baker Foundation and Rotary Balwyn.

RedR provided excellent feedback last week on the Training Program which was held in Tonga between 1 and 6 May. President David Hobson of Rotary Balwyn, Trevor Nink representing the Baker Foundation and myself representing Rotary Melbourne attended the meeting. Attached is a copy of the presentation.

Here is a link that talks about the volcanic eruption which was the trigger for this Program being run to better prepare 30 carefully selected Tongans to be better prepared for any future natural disasters.
