Kovallam was a town hit hard by the tsunami of 2004. A once picturesque, costal fishing town, Kovallam was raised to the ground by the natural disaster. Being but a two hour drive from Chennai, the headquarters of Aim for Seva, Kovallam received a full fledged Tsunami relief effort by AIMS. There was reconstruction of houses including temporary shelters and permanent homes, medical supplies , and most importantly, new fishing boats and nets were provided. These constitute the instruments of the villagers' livelihood. Asha specifically contributed money towards purchasing fishing nets for over 15 families.
