#MyFavouriteTrip : Tsunami Survivors

#MyFavouriteTrip : Tsunami Survivors

Facebook has prompted me of a Charity Cycle Challenge that I took part for International Childcare Trust in 2005 in Sri Lanka. I know this is like more than ten years ago, but I still have very fresh and fond memories from it.

This is a portrait of a tsunami survivor family at a campsite along side of a busy road. They share a tent and sleeps on a thin blanket together.

This is one of the photographs I took during my cycle challenge. The quality aren’t that great as I have lost the originals and I have just merely copy and paste the photos from Facebook and here they are above.

There are so many more beautiful photographs taken on the day, so do stay turned on my Instagram and Facebook to see more!

    What an amazing and impactful experience you must have had in Sri Lanka. We were there much later in 2015 for the anniversary day, and it was very moving and sad, but also felt a bit surreal as we gazed out at a tranquil beach. I admire the country for how well it has been able to recover – a testament to the resiliency of Sri Lankans.

      I felt the same. They really are show such resiliency. I can not imagine what it was like living like that. They have one of the beautiful beaches in the world. It is heartbreaking when something like this happened. I am glad to hear that they are on the mend in a positive way. x

    Such a poignant picture. I can’t believe it was so long ago either. It must have been a life-changing experience for you. #MyFavouriteTrip
