Tragedy and Trauma in Tuvalu
At about 11 p.m. on Thursday 8th March 2000 a fire broke out in one of the dormitories for girls at the mixed-sex Motufoua Secondary School on the island of Vaitupu in Tuvalu. The conflagration spread rapidly and caused the Matron and 18 of the residents to be burned to death. Its traumatic effects on the total Tuvalu population of about 10,000 was widespread, and said to be in proportion to the immediate loss of either 8,000 New Zealanders or 25,000 Australians in any one calamity in their respective countries. The response of the Tuvalu Government was to establish a Commission of Inquiry into the causes of the fire, and to seek the help of a trauma consultant from New Zealand in dealing with the human aspects of the aftermath.
