Title: Tsunami: Wheelchair story

While visiting one of the camps in Sri Lanka, Carmen and Chris met a father who insisted they see his daughter. Once they entered the dark and damp hut they saw this young child slumped in the corner like a rag doll. The family had nothing left after the Asian Tsunami, not even a chair for their disabled daughter to sit on.

This is the forth of five films about life six months on after the tsunami. Carmen also talks about the delivery of aid over recent months and the dreadful conditions they found while they out there. You can see the next short film on 01/10/2005...
