1 November 2005, Nagapattinam.
Less than one year after the tsunami washed away countless lives and livelihoods, today, a fire broke out in one of the temporary government shelters in Nagapattinam, TN where tsunami victims were being housed. While no one was hurt, over 200 families lost all their belongings.
New saris, dhotis, undergarments, underwear, children’s clothing, cooking vessels, and other necessities have been sent tonight from Amritapuri to the victims which will help them resume their lives as soon as possible. Amma’s compassion for the suffering of others continues to flow.
