South Asia Tsunami Revisited

December 26, 2014 - Today marks the 10th anniversary of the worst tsunami disaster in human history. More than 228,000 people died in 14 countries in Southeast Asia and South Asia, and as far away as Africa.

In all, nearly 2.5 million people were affected, losing their families, their homes, and their means of making even a meager living. Many of the people were already vulnerable and living in desperate poverty. Households headed by women particularly were pushed deeper into poverty. When the tsunami was finished, it was the most destructive disaster of its kind in history.

Ebola Update from Guinea

November 6, 2014 -- Ebola has devastated many families in Guinea. My brother-in-law has lost a great number of family members. His father, mother, children and other close relatives died in less than two months. A total of 17 people from that family have succumbed to the epidemic. Another family, who had hosted many people, were hospitalized. Now their house is closed and no one is living there. The only survivor from that household is a young man, who suffers from a mental disability. They have other family members, but none are living in Guinea. Fear has seized the hearts of their neighbors and friends.
