Outside a refugee camp near Palattadichchenai, Sri Lanka, for people left homeless by the South Asian tsunami, Sri Lankans begin to return home to rebuild their homes and lives. Refugees in this camp, located inside territory controlled by the Tamil Tigers separatist group, received assistance from a variety of organizations, including the National Christian Council of Sri Lanka, a member of Action by Churches Together (ACT) International. The December 26, 2004, tsunami left devastation behind along most of the island nation's coastline.
