Five years later

26 December 2009 No Comment

Today is the fifth anniversary of the destructive wave that sent shockwaves across the country. As the Maldives remembers the Indian Ocean tsunami, some of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) have been resettled in new houses, and in some cases, in new islands. Five years later, it is a pity, however, that several IDPs are still living in temporary shelters. For those living in temporary shelters, their old way of life is becoming a memory of the distant past as year after year passes.
