The European Union has given Tonga 27,000 US dollars to help with relief efforts in the Ha'apai Islands which were devastated by Cyclone Ian in January.

The island group was severely hit, with housing, infrastructure and crops suffering serious damage.

The money will be used by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community for its Increasing Agricultural Commodity Trade project.
