In Aceh province, Indonesia
On the road from Banda Aceh to Lamno
Arrived yesterday, 25 July, 2007 in Banda Aceh where we have a huge rehabilitation operation for people affected by the Tsunami. To date we have built 20,000 transitional shelters and have 17,800 permanent houses in various stages of completion. We also have major livelihoods, water sanitation, disaster preparedness, health, blood, ambulance and community outreach programmes.
It is such a joy to see people rebuilding their lives and most have conditions which are better than before the Tsunami. The international community is helping the people of Aceh to build back better.
