It is vital for volunteers and the people of Tonga to understand more on how to use the Emergency Shelter Tool Kit when natural disasters occur.

This is the main purpose of a three-day workshop currently held at Tonga Red Cross Society which started yesterday.

The training is based on preparing volunteers so they can help people when disasters strike.

A specialist from Fiji is conducting the training.
