* UNICEF and partners 'build back better' after the Indian Ocean tsunami
* 시간: 03 min 21 secs


New born babies at a primary health center in Tamil Nadu receive life saving care that would not have been so widely available before the 2004 tsunami.


Dozens of such centers were restored or strengthened in this part of India – one of the country’s hardest hit regions.


Emergency equipment was provided at the time by UNICEF and its partners, equipment that has dramatically improved neo-natal care and continues to save lives today.


SOUNDBITE DOCTOR SHANMUGHAM PRABHUWATY:
“They have given us delivery care, a new ambulance, other 24 hour ambulances, we have scans, ultra sonograms, ECGs, x-rays and paediatricians around the clock.”


It’s one of the many examples of how the disaster became an opportunity to reach millions of vulnerable and marginalized women and children. Building back better in means meeting needs in ways impossible before the tsunami.


This child is being weighed as part of the Integrated Child Development Scheme. After the tsunami more than a thousand volunteers were recruited to help restore child care services as part of the program. Nutrition among children has improved as a result and workers say they can see the difference…


SOUNDBITE RATNASAMY SANGEETHA, INTEGRATED CHILD DEVELOPMENT SCHEME:
“I could see visible improvement in the nutritional status of children. There were several children with poor weight in the center to begin with. As days went by, several of them had gained weight.”


In Banda Aceh, Indonesia, UNICEF’s policy of building back better is resulting in hundreds of new earthquake resistant schools. The new designs are typical of the higher safety standards and follow a child-friendly school approach.


Water and sanitation is another area where long term improvements have been made.


This woman from Hindu Tamil community, Sri Lanka, lost her husband, a daughter and her home in the tsunami. In the following months finding clean water for her four surviving children was a constant problem – but now she uses a well, dug by UNICEF.


Other schemes in the country are larger in scale – like this water treatment plant which, when completed, will serve thousands of people living in one of Sri Lanka’s poorest and conflict torn communities.


Schools, health care, water and sanitation. The tsunami relief effort provided an opportunity to build back better.


And most importantly now, these projects are here to stay, a lasting legacy that will benefit millions of children for years to come.
