Banda Aceh, Northern Sumatra, INDONESIA

Dinah (18) lost around fifty members of her extended family in the tsunami which struck South Asia on 26/12/2004. All that she is able to salvage from her home in the Ulele district fits into one plastic bag. She is helped in this grim task by a soldier who is a distant relative.
An underwater earthquake measuring 9 on the Richter scale triggered a series of tidal waves which caused devastation when they struck dry land. 12 countries were affected by the tsunami, with a combined death toll of over 280,000. Aceh, the closest landfall to the epicentre of the quake, suffered the greatest loss of life.
