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.

Solution

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.

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.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
