Members of Tonga’s Royal Family will meet with Parramatta’s Tongan community at Granville during an official visit to Australia.
His Serene Highness, Prince Tungi, his mother the Hon. Alaileula Tuku’aho and other members of the royal family will meet with local Tongans at the Granville Youth and Community Centre on Wednesday.
Organised by the not-for-profit Noni and the Tongan SDA (Seventh Day Adventist) Project group, the event will enable the royal family to meet with and talk to those currently in need.
Parramatta lord mayorJohn Chedid said he was honoured to welcome His Serene Highness Prince Tungi and his family to the city of Parramatta.
“Each week the Noni and the Tongan SDA Project group meet tirelessly and with limited resources to provide free meals and food packages to the needy and homeless,” Cr Chedid said.
“Their efforts are making a valuable difference, and we’re proud to be able to help them showcase to the Royal Family the important work they perform.
“On an ongoing basis, our staff at the Granville Youth and Community Centre will continue to work to help them obtain funding through community grants for this worthwhile program.”
As chair of the executive committee for the Red Cross in Tonga, the Hon. Alaileula Tuku’aho was instrumental in bringing her family to the program to show their support.
