Tsunami victims still living in tents

We are one of the contributors to the April 07 tsunami victims, where our association donated 1.3 million yen on 13th June last year via national disaster council (NDC).

It is sad to hear that the Malakerava coastal residents on Gizo island who were victims of the April earthquakes and tsunami last year are still livig in tents.

If their claim is true and they have not received any help to rebuild their homes and money which government had disbursed for tsunami victims, then the millions of dollars donated by our neighboring countries and international organizations to rehabilitate the victims may have ended up somewhere else.
