Durham’s tsunami mission

Have your say

BIG-hearted students from Durham University are helping the continued rebuild of Sri Lanka following the 2004 tsunami.

Two teams of undergraduates are taking part in Project Sri Lanka – the humanitarian initiative set up by Durham University in 2005 – working across nine pre-schools and community buildings for ten weeks.

Sixteen students have gone to the tsunami-affected Southern Province and eight sports students have gone to an inland province, where they will also teach at Sabaragamuwa University.

Project Sri Lanka has seen Durham University staff, students and alumni offering support in terms of manpower, fund-raising and research.
