INDONESIA Laboratroy for testing drinking water. Photograph taken in Meulaboh, Aceh Province mid-December 2006, 2 years after the Tsunami of December 26th 2004 devastated much of the coastal region. Taken to illustrate reconstruction work and projects of CRS (Catholic Relief Services) of USA who sponsored the photo tour. The lab terchnician explains: "Every house well gets tested. UNICEF originally helped set up the lab to support other NGOs in the area, and now CRS helps pay staff salaries and provides us with equipment. The lab coordinates its activities with the local government. The water in local wells is quite contaminated, especially with Arsenic, as well as Nitrates, Nitrites, Iron, Manganese and Fluoride. The water became salinated after the Tsunami. We test here both the water from shallow and deep wells."

At first we felt the earthquake,  then the water flooded in and we sheltered on the roof of the nearby mosque. CRS has served us well,  providing water from 2 sources. We get our drinking water through pipes from a bore hole,  and our water for bathing comes from shallow wells which they have dug for us."   stock photo

#06id089 - INDONESIA Anik Mawarni Mahalijah, a tsunami survivor who lost many members of her family. Photograph taken in Meulaboh, Aceh Province mid-December 2006, 2 years after the Tsunami of December 26th 2004 devastated much of the coastal region. Taken to illustrate reconstruction work and projects of CRS (Catholic Relief Services) of USA who sponsored the photo tour. In background is a generator ship which was washed several kms inland by the tsunami and is being left as a monument to the disaster. Anik’s testimony: "The earthquake which caused theTsunami struck around 8 a.m. on a Sunday morning. I was at home with my mother and father at the time. My husband was in his shop selling motor oil. My daughter was on the beach with my auntie. We went to get my daughter and brought her to our house, which is about 4 km from the sea. Then we heard a sound like 1000 trucks and saw the water rushing towards us. We all ran, holding hands, and there was chaos everywhere. People all ran different ways, as the water caught up to us and rushed over our backs. We were washed along to a wall, where we managed to climb onto a roof from where we saw the sea carrying trees, whole houses and dead people along. Many cried for help but there was nothing we could do. After half an hour we found my mother and father safe, but we couldnt return to our house because of all the debris. We went to a hill nearby and stayed a month there with other victims. At first I thought Id never return to the village, out of fear. I cried every day afterwards for a long time. I lost 120 members of my extended family, in all."
