The Embassy of the Kingdom of Tonga in Beijing joined together with other countries from Europe, Asia Pacific Region, Middle East, and North/South America in a charity fund raising on Saturday 17th September 2011 to help the poor mountain villages of Yunnan Province.
The Tongan Embassy was able to raise 2000.00 RMB by selling Tongan fruit bunch (‘Otai drinks). Three containers of ‘Otai drinks were prepared but were running short due to the large number of people queuing to the Tongan booth to enjoy the Island drinks.
The Ambassador H.E. Siamelie Latu said, it is not important how much you can raise but being responsive and participative in the activities are of paramount importance in promoting cordial and friendly relations between the People's Republic of China and the Kingdom of Tonga.
The sales revenue was donated to the Aid Projects of Xinzhai Village and Chongzi Village.ENDS
