When disaster strikes, it can change the fabric of a society. Often this happens through the unfortunate loss of human life. One example is the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami that left 35,000 children in Indonesia without one or both of their parents. Another example is the Black Death plague that killed more than 75 million people worldwide and more than a third of Europe’s population between 1347 and 1351.
