Sri Lankans in U.S. Look to Aid Home Country

NPR's Jennifer Ludden visits a fund raiser in Bethesda, Md., where groups of professionals of Sri Lankan heritage make plans to send aid to help tsunami victims. Their main concern is for the people in the mostly Tamil northeast region of Sri Lanka, where decades of civil war have left the residents weak and malnourished.
