This is a video that compiles a number of Shelter Reconstruction programs that were implemented in Sri Lanka after the Tsunami that took place on the 26th of December 2004. Several Red Cross Red Crescent Societies were involved in support of the Sri Lanka Red Cross. All these programs have in common that the affected population had the main role in their implementation. That is why they were called owner-driven.
