Two British brothers who survived the 2004 tsunami that made them orphans built orphanage to thank Sri Lankans for their help.

A decade after being orphaned by the Asian tsunami, British brothers Rob and Paul Forkan are successful entrepreneurs who are giving back to the Sri Lankans who helped them by building an orphanage. . . . Ten years later Rob, 27, and Paul, 25, recounted their incredible story and their philanthropic work, wearing their trademark flip-flops and Bermuda shorts in their beachwear company's London office. 'When we were in Sri Lanka and we got affected by the tsunami ourselves, and we lost our parents, the children of Sri Lanka helped us get home. So this is kind of returning the favour,' Rob told AFP."-- Agence France-Presse, via NDTV.com
