Project Description

Annai Sathya Tsunami Rehabilitation Center

The tsunami of December 26, 2004 left a trail of death and destruction along the Tamilnadu coast. More than 7000 people perished in and around the town of Nagapattinam which was most affected. Tens of thousands were left homeless and the elderly and destitute in particular lived in pathetic conditions fending for themselves.Most tragically, hundreds of children were orphaned, many of them losing both parents in the tragedy.
