In response to the Tsunami disaster, Cradle decided to bring our well established projects to the areas affected most in Southeast Asia. We have established an office in the Province of Phang-Nga north of Phuket in Thailand, where we have local representatives working to implement our emergency aid programs. We have established our family support program which provides aid to the worst affected families on a regular basis. As a result of the tsunami disaster many children lost one or both of their parents as well as losing their homes and other family members. Cradle has been supporting such families on a weekly basis since January 2005. This support includes food, hygiene products, household items, school materials and other items which may be required by each individual child.
Resourcing: Cradle provides livestock to families on our family support programme which enables them to product milk, butter, cheese, eggs etc. and thereby become more self-sufficient.
