Jersey Side by Side formed following the Boxing Day 2004 tsunami which flooded across low-lying areas of South-East Asia, including Sri Lanka, Thailand and Indonesia. More than 230,000 people lost their lives and whole towns and communities were swept away or reduced to ruins.
In January 2005, 5,000 islanders joined in a gesture of solidarity with the stricken people by gathering in silent fellowship on the beach at St Ouen’s Bay, lining up together to spell out the message SIDE BY SIDE.
