Product Description

Immediately following the 2004 tsunami disaster, Alison and Oscar raced to Sri Lanka, with little money or experience, and planned to volunteer for two weeks. Along the way, they met up with two other volunteers - Donny and Bruce. Together they found themselves running a refugee camp for over a year. The villagers slowly turned against them as the world's donated aid money never materialized. To survive they broke every rule in the diaster aid books and a village was reborn.

THE THIRD WAVE is a road map for volunteering. In a world of increasing natural and man-made disasters, volunteers are needed… no experience required.

When I watched this documentary for the first time, I was moved beyond words. To see what one person and a heart of gold can do was so amazing to me. I have since watched it about a dozen times and I get something new from it each time. I used to think to myself what can one person do? Some of these disasters are so HUGE, that it can make you feel helpless. Alison Thompson shows you that one motivated person can make a huge impact on thousands of people's lives, and personally got me involved in Haiti. This movie chronicles her time in Sri Lanka with the help of a few friends, rebuilt a town, saved countless lives and developed the first Tsunami early warning system in Sri Lanka. What started out as a trip that was supposed to last 10 days turned out to be an inspiration to thousands. Truly one of the best documentaries I have ever seen, and the book which covers before and after Sri Lanka is an amazing read as well.

Alison Thompson's story is one gigantic lie.
Alison Thompson walked into Paraliya in early 2005, amply cleavaged and with a camera team in tow, where she found a makeshift hospital run by a crew of volunteers from Hamelin, Gemany. Thompson simply took over the operation and claimed it as her own, by finding a vacant building and moving the Hospital there with the aid of her crew of four, while she was asked to stay on watch. Then she set up a large sign rechristening it from "Hameln Hospital" into a name of her choosing.
Meanwhile, the actual license to run the hospital was procured by the Germans, and it remained running under their name, so they would have to shoulder consequences in case of malpractise (luckily, no such cases happened - amazing, if you consider that the Hamelin team treated more than 18000 patients). Even the medical supplies Thompson claims to have brought in came from the German crew. Thompson and her entourage did nothing except referring patients to the Germans, who then treated them.
In the meantime, Thompson stood outside the hospital tent giving pompous interviews while the Germans were inside the hospital, too busy aiding the injured to produce a favourable image of themselves for the media (note the careful makeup Thompson is wearing on most photos in the middle of disaster). Thompson herself apparently never treated one single patient, in spite of her claims of being a professional nurse.
Also, it's quite doubtful the self-styled "body collector" collected one single body with her own hands *off camera*.

Very touching documentary! Having been to Sri Lanka and seeing some of the after effects, this was something I had to watch!
