notes from sri lanka

Erin (AKA travelorphan) has been offline for a while, but on her return from the field she’s made several posts to her blog detailing some of her recent work and the events in Sri Lanka.

Many people are still trying to rebuild their lives following the devastation of the 2005 tsunami and Erin has had the opportunity to assist local evacuation and disaster management using activities such as community-led vulnerability mapping. However, much of this recovery goes on in the midst of an ongoing conflict, which is endangering those offering aid and diverting resources away from civilian and toward military uses.

Check out some of her notes and pictures. Stirring stuff.
