Disaster
INDONESIA 7-year-old Amalul Alif(orange check shirt) lives nearby in a CRS house registered in his own name. He lost both parents to the Tsunami, but now lives in the house with an aunt, 29-year-old Fitriah. Photograph taken in 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. Fitriah’s testimony: "The water rushed in from 7 km away, coming from two sides and hitting us with a clapping motion. It was devastating. I was in the volleyball court at the time. I have no idea how I survived. It was like a dream. I dont know how long I was under water. I was holding on to my daughters T-shirt. I still get afraid whenever I hear a strong wind or feel an earth tremor. The Tsunami sounded like an airplane, plus the sound of people screaming!"

I was in this terminal when the Tsunami struck. At first we felt the earthquake,  but didnt know that water would follow,  15 minutes later.  We just sat here after the earthquake,  then started to hear people screaming and running towards us from the beach. We got up and ran too,  and headed towards a hill nearby as we saw the water come flooding in. It has taken a long time to get over it,  but now life is back to normal again,  thank God!"   stock photo
