Visiting tsunami survivors a credit to our famed generosity

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 20/04/2015

The generosity of Northern Ireland people is legendary. It may not be the richest country in the world but people dig deep into their pockets for all sorts of causes, both at home and abroad. A case in point is the charity set up by a Portrush bar manager to help educate Thai children orphaned by the dreadful tsunami 10 years ago.

The charity, which has also gained support from Ulster rugby players and golfer Graeme McDowell, has transformed the lives of those youngsters, seven of whom have come to Northern Ireland to say thanks to the thousands of people who have given donations and allow them to see the impact they made.
