10 years on and your support has left a legacy to feel proud of.
An update from one of the very first posts I made on my blog here, its in the first month of the archive on the right!
From the archive: students happy with the new school DEC member World Vision built after theirs was damaged by the 2004 Tsunami
On Boxing Day 2004 a series of tsunamis killed an estimated 230,000 people and made 1.7 million people homeless across 14 countries. The scale of the disaster was unprecedented. Ten years on we remember those who died, the local communities that first responded and the combined efforts of the global relief teams to rebuild a shattered region.
The damage caused by this one moment in history totalled over £6 billion and a decade later, we can say with confidence that the outpouring of donations from the UK public saved lives, helped survivors to recover their incomes in strong solid homes, stay healthy and prepare for the next disaster.
