Packs of supplies will provide immediate relief to residents of 13 villages living in camps following the tsunami.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Fisherman communities living on the coast were the worst hit by the tsunami in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Relief camps and temporary structures have been constructed, but their 2000+ residents need food, medicine, and other basic supplies.
How will this project solve this problem?
Packs of supplies will be distributed to evacuees living in temporary camps. Some packs include basic items like bread, water, and candles, while others are for special needs populations and include milk powder, bottles, and medicines.
Potential Long Term Impact
Emergency packs will meet the immediate needs of those most affected by the disaster. Food, water, and medicine will improve the health of survivors and allow them to begin to rebuild their lives.
