    I am... A child of the sea

    TVE Asia Pacific

    by TVE Asia Pacific

    Lakshani, 9, has lived by the sea all her life. When she was six, the Asian Tsunami of December 2004 destroyed their beachfront house in Koralawella, Moratuwa, on Sri Lanka's western coast. More than three years later, her family is still struggling to raise their heads. Lakshani takes us through a typical day, and shares her wishes for a cleaner beach and better neighbourhood. No longer afraid of the waves, she is back being a child of the sea.
