[ February 3rd 2005 ]
Willgrass was tragically killed by the tsunami
in Phuket, Thailand. A couple sheltered her husband
Nigel and their four children the night directly
after the tsunami and drove them the 12 hour trip
in their pick-up truck to Bangkok the next day.
These people have absolutely nothing, yet they
gave so much. Despite having lost a close friend
themselves, they ensured the children were looked
after while their father searched for their mother,
then sheltered, fed and comforted the whole family
until they were safe in Bankok, a heart warming
act for which they would accept no payment.
tsunami fund has been formed in her memory and
will channel proceeds into projects in need of
help within the Phuket area as advised by the
couple who gave so much. "Ideally we would like
to help with the building of new schools and developing
the schools that are currently there and also
provide books and desks where needed.
learned that 300 children have either been orphaned,
or lost the main breadwinner from their family,
so it is imperative that we can ensure the continuation
of these children’s schooling."
