Rotary donate laptops to Tongan organisations

The Rotary Club of Katikati in the Bay of Plenty of New Zealand, with support from a local Tauranga company “Ballance”, have provided laptops through the New Zealand Police International Service Group for use in the pacific.  The laptops have been fully restored after use by the company and have been provided with software and a carry bag.

Three laptops were recently presented in Tonga.  PPDVP Tonga Mentor, Greg Turner, handed over the laptops and noted “These are a great way for New Zealand organisations and their community to support the work on domestic and family violence in Tonga and other pacific countries.” A media article is available.
