Even though it's been nearly seven years since a tsunami tore apart Sri Lanka's coastal communities, some 400 families continue to live in refugee camps on the east coast of the country. Fortunately for the families in the Sainthamaruthu camp, an IFAD-supported project has just broken ground on a new housing development that will provide all the families in the camp with new homes. Despite the out-pouring of international support just after the tsunami, IFAD is the only international organization that continues to build houses to resettle tsunami victims.
