New Chapter

Banda Aceh is a city which was established on April 22, 1205 by Sultan Alaidin Johansyah, is one of the oldest Islamic city in the South-East of Asia.
On December 26, 2004, an earthquake struck 150 km off the coast of Aceh. It was the most powerful the world has seen in a generation. Forty-five minutes later the tsunami wave hit Aceh and within minutes it swept clean an 800 km coastal strip of Aceh – equivalent to the coastline from San Francisco to San Diego. Some 130,000 people were killed and 37,000 remain missing.
a year after the tsunami, there are a lot of international NGOs in Aceh to assist the recovery and reconstruction process, and the recontruction is still going on.
Now Aceh will have a new history, and new chapter for the future....
