News in Review Tsunami Aftermath: An Avalanche of Aid

News in Review Tsunami Aftermath: An Avalanche of Aid

The December 2004 tsunami disaster in the Indian Ocean killed an estimated 300,000 people. The giant waves also destroyed many coastal towns and villages and left millions of people homeless. In this News in Review story, the CBC’s Mark Kelley visits Indonesia, the country hardest hit by the tsunami. Two months after the killer waves came ashore, he looks at what’s been done to help the survivors. He discovers that while the huge global response is making a difference, the large number of aid groups trying to help is complicating relief efforts.
