Swedish Schools Praised for Tsunami Assistance
Swedish schools have been top grades for quickly taking measures to help those who survived and the friends and families of those injured and lost in last year’s tsunami disaster in South East Asia.
This comes after a citizen’s committee report blasted the Swedish government and other authorities for reaction too slowly to help the victims, bring home and bodies and give psychological care to those in trauma.
Some 100 Swedish schools are listed for having given speedy attention and care to those in need after the disaster.
With over 20,000 Swedes on winter holidays in Thailand and other Southeast Asian nations at the time, the over 500 Swedish deaths places this Nordic nation at the top of the list of nations outside the region suffering casualities from the tsunami wave.
