I don't know if this blog is still active but I need help...Cross-posted on the South-East Asia Earthquake And Tsunami blog.
I've recently started work, with PRAYAS Andaman & Nicobar, in one of the worst affected Areas during the Tsunami of 26th December 2004. My organisation has been here since the relief phase, and we basically work with child rights and ensuring that Children are restored to their pre-tsunami (or even better by peaking any pre-tsunami acmes)states of life.
Life here is difficult but the work... Is endless...!
The relief work has long stopped and we are in the process of rehabilitation and rebuilding... And this is as equally crucial a phase as the relief phase...
We need the world not to forget us...!
The reason I'm posting here is to seek help with getting Medical (peadiatric, ENT, Opth, Dermatology, Nursing, first-aid etc) and Education (Teachers and Teacher-Trainers) specialists over to the islands, with the view of conducting camps and workshops (orientation, refresher and capacity-building)here.
I still am in the process of formulating an overall plan and would appreciate tips and ideas.
If anyone has anything for me I'm contactable at vijay DOT jivay2003 AT gmail DOT com
