We Are One: Children and Volunteers at a Camp
Krishna has given us some lovely photos from camps at Kalmunai and Batticaloa. One thing that is important to realize is that through all this chaos Sri Lankans (especially children) are still smiling, growing and building a better Sri Lanka.

I have been deeply touched by your coverage of the recent tragedy in Asia. The way you have helped to make the outside world aware of the plight of the Sri Lankan people, is highly commendable.
I am contacting sarvodaya.org with a request of help from you and your readers from the Library of Life; a website (www.libraryoflife.org) whose aim is to compile the life stories of millions of people around the world, thereby creating the world’s first universal record of life that lasts forever. The website raises funds for the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and in this time of need they have asked us to create a living memorial to all the victims of this tragedy. This will be done through photographs, text, film, sound and scanned documents on the site.
The Library of Life, in association with the IFRC, is inviting all those whose lives have been affected by the tragedy to create a free memorial to commemorate their loved ones, or post their own experiences as a record for all future generations. We have also set up an online ‘Tsunami Book of Condolence’, which we are inviting the public to sign and express their feelings on this terrible disaster.In order for this great humanitarian project to be successful it is essential that we have as much information and reach as many people as possible.
