Why Thailand?

Being responsible for over 300,000 deaths and millions of displacements, the 2004 Tsunami was one of the worst known natural disasters of all time. It tore through whole seaside communities and often devastated them irreparably. Despite help from all over the world, many of those affected are still trying to rebuild their shattered lives. Those children directly affected by the tidal wave, still tell tales of struggling in the water. Such an adverse experience contributes significantly to children’s difficulties adapting. Particularly stressful were very severe exposure to trauma, loss of family members as well as violence. As a group, children are the most vulnerable to the harmful long-term psychological consequences of trauma and destruction.
