S. Korea to provide $200,000 in humanitarian aid to tsunami-hit Tonga Updated: 2022-01-20 21:35:31 KST

The South Korean government will provide 200-thousand U.S. dollars in humanitarian aid to Tonga, after the Pacific island nation was hit by the recent tsunami.
Seoul's foreign ministry said Thursday that it will also review the need to provide additional support, after being informed of the exact scale of the damage.
There have been fears over contaminated water sources caused by volcanic ash and salt water from the tsunami, that could increase the risk of diseases such as cholera and diarrhea.
Seoul reportedly plans to provide more supplies through international organizations, such as the UN should Tonga request further support.
