Take a look at the photo gallery and you may think things are going swimmingly but we are simply making progress. There is still much more to be done, for example, the tsunami center is still being funded by volunteer cash.
We are also trying to look at the long-term social restructuring of the village and taking care of the people who have been left behind all along the coast.
A tsunami warning system has been set up to help save people from the devastating psychological effects of false warnings. The project was set up by Peraliya volunteers Alison Thompson, Dr Novil and James Ellis. We are in our third year now and we are the only tsunami center that exists in Sri Lanka today. On busy days we field up to 250 calls a day. Alison supports the center by herself each month so we are in need for others to help donate money for its long term needs.
If you would like to donate to the charity account James has set up, here are the bank details
