On December 26th 2004, tsunamis induced by a massive earthquake in the Indian ocean hit India among other countries in the South Asian and South-East Asian region.

In this time of crisis, in Bangalore, a network of voluntary organisations, colleges, student organisations, NGOs, etc. have come together to launch the CITIZENS INITIATIVE FOR TSUNAMI VICTIMS to develop collective efforts for mobilising relief material and money to help victims through credible contact points in the affected areas. A series of collection points for material and donations are also set up.

St. Joseph’s College of Arts and Science will be the main contact point for collection of material and donations.
