Pozuelo de Alarcón (Spain), May 27, 2005.  The student body of Francisco de Vitoria University helped finance the purchase of a fishing boat for Sri Lanka’s tsunami victims through a project coordinated by Cooperación Internacional.

As part of the fundraising campaign, the students organized a charity soccer game and a day on which they offered various activities and services related to their future careers in exchange for a token sum of money.

This project is based in Payagala, a small city of 25,000 inhabitants that was devastated by the tsunami.  The town relies on fishing as its main source of livelihood.  In this region, charitable efforts are primarily being directed toward the families so that they can resume their work and find a way to earn a living.
