Dermot Tatlow

Banda Aceh, Northern Sumatra, INDONESIA

Supplies of tetanus immunoglobulin from Denmark are distributed by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to the South Australian medical team working in the Fakina hospital. Aid agencies are trying to halt the spread of disease amongst survivors of the tsunami which struck South Asia on 26/12/2004.
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.
