We the group of students of Indonesian language and culture at Charles University in Prague, along with TENGGARA (meaning "the Southeast" in Indonesian), an association of friends of Indonesia, began organizing activities aimed at direct help in the relief works for people in Aceh. Aceh is the Indonesian province in northern Sumatra most severely hit by the recent natural catastrophe. The December 2004 earthquake followed by devastating tsunami waves killed over 100,000 people there, and destroyed virtually all property of several million others who survived. Our help effort is organized in direct co-operation with our fellow Indonesian students who act on the spot.

 

Banda Aceh, the provincial capital which was almost completely flattened by the powers of nature, became the destination a week ago for the group of our friends, students of the STSI (School of Indonesian Arts) in Padang Panjang. These students are currently working there as volunteers helping in cleaning operations and burials of the victims. In the next six months or more, they will co-operate at the additional reconstruction and sanitary works in the area.

The student group of volunteers has found its leader in Murtala (27) who comes directly from the destroyed city of Banda Aceh. Murtala´s family, including eight brothers and sisters (some of whom had lived in Meulaboh, one of the most tragically hit towns), and all of his neighbours were stripped of all their property during the earthquake and subsequent tsunami attack. Those who saved their lives are reported surviving in one of the nearby refugee camps. According to the snippets of information available to Murtala, most children fell sick of the lack of food and milk. All the families in the entire area suffer from food shortage, lack of fuel for cooking, and absence of basic medicaments. As far as we have learnt from recent news, the medical care and surgical operations, including even the amputations, are currently performed without anaesthetics, antibiotics, hygienic materials, and sterilization tools.

Murtala and the students are currently struggling to prepare at least the basic conditions that would allow these people to return, as soon as possible, to the sites where they lived before the devastation and start to build their new existence in some way. With regard to the fact that the Czech humanitarian organizations are not working in Indonesia as yet, we decided to organize a direct financial help which would subsequently be sent to our student friends-volunteers as a contribution usable for the restoration of life conditions in Banda Aceh. Information on the course of the works as well as on the utilization of this financial aid will be provided continuously on this page.

In case you would decide to join our efforts, please send your financial contribution to the account No. 2023330001/2400 established for this purpose at eBanka bank, Czech Republic.
