(ASSIST News Service / AgapePress) - Arguably the worst natural disaster the world has ever seen, the December 26, 2004 tsunami left a final death toll of 175,000, 15,000 of whom were in India. And long after the television crews have gone and the benefit concerts have ended, Hopegivers International's daily commitment to the tsunami victims is still going and growing stronger.
'We never thought it would be short or easy,' says Dr. Samuel Thomas, president of Hopegivers International. 'We are dedicated to bringing help and hope to the children -- and this could take 20 years or more.'"
