Save the Children International
The devastating Asia tsunami of December 26, 2004, was one of the biggest emergency responses in Save the Children’s history. Four years later, when the world’s focus had largely moved on, Save the Children continued to stand by hundreds of thousands of children and family members who survived the disaster in more than 1,000 villages in five countries: Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand and Somalia.
This report summarizes the progress Save the Children made and the lives it helped transform as a result of its planned five-year response and recovery program. As this report documents, Save the Children achieved significant results in many critical areas including child protection, education, health livelihoods and disaster risk reduction.
