Aid supplies were distributed last Saturday to families in Patangata to assist them while recovering from Cyclone Gita. The supplies include sugar, flour, rice, clothes and others.

The assistance is from the Tu’ihalamaka’s family living in the US.

Speaking to Radio and Television Tonga News Poutele Tu’ihalamaka says his eldest daughter and the rest of his children in the US wanted the items to be donated to the residents of Patangata.

Tu’ihalamaka says, his daughter chose Patangata after she had seen photos of the residents on the internet.

Meanwhile, the chairman of the village committee – Sikulu Mafi says, the residents are thankful for the assistance because majority of them only earn income from fishing.

A total of 107 families in Patangata.
