The tsunami was horrific, and a disaster on a scale which we rarely see. A lot of the damage was to areas which are, by western standards, under-developed in terms of accommodation and facilities for people who live there. Reconstruction will necessarily be slow in some places, faster in others. For some, life - at least on the surface - seems to be returning to normal, but for most maybe it never will.
Agencies like Oxfam, who presumably are always looking for donations, would have a different view on progress to the locals.
Anyway, its not something to quibble about here. The reponse by people and many governments of the world was overwhelming in its generosity. Today many people are re-living the horror of a year ago. I hope the levels of international co-operation and concern will ensure that re-building of at least the material things continues to happen as quickly as possible. We can only hope and pray that the rebuilding of the lifestyle of the people will one day also be complete. What we dont need is a media feeding frenzy on the anniversary.
