A New Zealand charity is on the lookout for second-hand tractors to send to Tonga and help farmers there till their ash-laden soil.

The Pasifika Safe Shelter Trust has sent several reconditioned tractors to Tonga since the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano erupted last year, smothering fields with tonnes of ash.
