South Pacific Tsunami Disaster Recovery Fund



A tsunami resulting from a magnitude 8.0 earthquake in the South Pacific has destroyed entire villages. As of 10/1, the death toll is 150 in American Samoa, Samoa and Tonga.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

This Fund will work with project partners to supply displaced residents with food, shelter, and other basic necessities in the wake of the disaster. Officials fear the death toll will rise as they reach more remote areas.

How will this project solve this problem?

Provide food, water, emergency medical supplies and housing to residents displaced and affected by the earthquake and tsunami in the South Pacific which caused heavy damage and leveled entire villages.

Potential Long Term Impact

Help residents of American Samoa, Samoa and Tonga recover from the severe effects of this earthquake and tsunami.
