KPMG raises £2m to rebuild tsunami villages

KPMG’s international branches have combined to raise more than $3.5m (£2m)
for the rebuilding of five villages in the tsunami-hit disaster area of Sri

The Big Four’s UK branch helped to build 25 houses in Seenigama, with staff
in the US and Germany also responsible for recovery work at individual villages.

Rajan Asirwatham, KPMG’s senior partner in Sri Lanka, said: ‘Those who
survived had to deal with unprecedented damage to their homes and villages,
compelling people to occupy tents in hastily set up camps undergoing severe
hardships. It was this dire need for housing in affected areas which prompted
the funding and development of five KPMG villages in Sri Lanka.’
