Ten years on

A decade after around 250,000 people across East and South Asia were killed, Goddy Paul, our Emergencies Programme Manager at the time, looks back at the tragedy. 

In his blog, he talks about the initial shock and HelpAge's quick response.

He also highlights how our work in emergencies and disaster risk reduction has changed forever for the better by making older people central to it.

Read Goddy's blog on the Tsunami.
