Canadians donated close to $213 million to eligible aid agencies to help tsunami-affected areas. The Canadian government matched this amount. Pictured here are World Vision housing projects in Banda Aceh. The homes are being built with some of the nearby debris, a grim reminder of the devastation left by the disaster. Much of the rubble has already been removed and, in a few more years, the new homes in Aceh will be the only evidence of the biggest natural disaster in recorded history.
