#10yearsTsunamiAceh


On 26 December 2004, a series of underwater earthquake occurred just off the Aceh coast, Indonesia.  The 9.3 Richter scale earthquake was one of the worst earthquakes ever to be seen in the history, and Tsunami waves up to 30 metres high, devastating coastal communities in 14 countries as far as the African continent with a 230,000 death toll. Indonesia was the hardest-hit country. Thousands of people in Aceh lost their lives, families and homes, while some are still missing up to this day.

Ten years after the catastrophe, Aceh is still recovering. While some communities never have fully recovered with scars deeply entrenched, they never fail to keep their spirit alive.

PPI Glasgow presents this video as a remembrance to this disastrous event, sending the victims of the disaster hopes for a better tomorrow, deepest sympathy and prayers.
