Sub-project: Tsunami in S. India and Indonesia

India and Indonesia

The results of the tsunami that swept SE Asia December 26, 2004 was horrific for those effected. Grassroots Asia responded to the state of Tamil Nadu in S. India on 1/2/05 with supplies for victims in five fishing villages and one agricultural community. Over 700 families were provided with stoves, toiletries, clothes, tents and food. Medical supplies and water purification tablets were also provided to remote areas of Indonesia in a cooperative effort between Grassroots Asia and the Indian Navy. Grassroots Asia re-visited the villages in July 2005 and found that sufficient aid had reached the villages and that development efforts were underway. No more tsunami relief is currently taking place.
