The lives of millions of people in India, Thailand, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and Somalia have been torn apart by the December tsunami. They have lost not only loved ones, but also livelihoods, homes, infrastructure, and basic social services. They need sanitation and clean drinking water, shelter, and livelihoods.
CARE will rehabilitate water sources, rebuild homes, provide fishing nets and boat repair, build poultry and goat stocks, offer technology training and trauma counseling, and ease access to loans.
Tsunami-affected families will be healthier, earn an income and will be better protected against future disasters. Survivors can earn money by rebuilding roads, communication networks, water systems, health centers and schools.
This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
