The Save the Children Asian Earthquake/Tsunami Relief Fund strives to alleviate children’s emotional trauma through the provision of safe spaces, structured activities and non-formal education that provide them with a respite from the tremendous stress. Over the long term, the Fund will also bring to bear its capacity to help families recover their livelihoods and for communities to rebuild the social systems on which the well-being of the poorest children and women depend.
