Asia Tsunami Disaster Relief

Millions Homeless - The Worst Earthquakes in 40 Years and large tsunamis leave thousands dead, millions displaced

Massive tsunamis (tidal waves) caused by the worst earthquakes in 40 years have devastated seaside villages across Southeast Asia. Sri Lanka, Indonesia, India, Thailand and Malaysia were the worst affected. The number of casualties has swelled beyond 150, 000 and officials now fear that lack of food, lack of clean water and disease could easily result in more deaths than the initial disaster itself.

The information is not verified or tracked by either the ICRC or the American Red Cross but is offered by the ICRC as a stand-alone internet tool for inquirers to use on their own.
