Storm-damaged Felemea center rebuilt
Our project on ‘Uiha Island, Tonga, suffered a major setback in January when the community center we had helped the Felemea community retrofit was leveled by Cyclone Ian, a Category 5 storm that ravaged Tonga and Fiji, among other Pacific islands. It was deemed that the entire structure was beyond repair and would have to be rebuilt from the ground up. Fortunately, Seacology was able to quickly mobilize the funding to make that happen.
We’re happy to report that construction of the new Felemea center is already under way and making quick progress. A new foundation has been laid, and some of the walls already raised. Check out some photos of the progress on our Facebook page.
