15 Years of Aceh Tsunami: From disaster survivor to becoming a humanitarian
‘A friend of disaster' is what 33-year-old Munawar calls himself. He was born and raised in Aceh, Sumatra, Indonesia. In 1999, when he was only 13 years old, his family was affected by armed conflict. Displaced and fearing for their lives Munawar’s family was evacuated to a relative's house outside of town for six months.
