On December 26th 2004 a tsunami hit India. Thousands were killed and many people were left homeless and without the means to make a living. In the spring of the following year Dr Aldo Lo Curto went to the Kanyakumari District in India to better understand what had happened. He was touched by the work done at the Nirmala Hospital, in Karungal, where dispite the difficult conditions they strove to provide urgently needed first aid to the victims.
This is when the support of FOH started in the region. We began by funding two boats for the local villages and 60 mattresses for the beds in the Nirmala hospital. Later FOH funded the creation of a Holistic Health center led by Sister Clara, the installation of air conditioning in the hospital and a solar water heater in order to further battle harsh conditions.
