On December 26, 2004, a massive tsunami devastated all the coastal regions in the Indian Ocean. In Sri Lanka over 50,000 people were killed, tens of thousands of homes destroyed, hundreds of thousands of people displaced, and tens of thousands of children orphaned. Even though the world responded with unprecedented humanitarian aid at the time, years later, there were still many survivors who needed help—there still are.
