Ache, Indonesia, home to the survivors of the 2004 tsunami. Vast numbers of poor families living in remote villages have been forgotten about. Their living conditions are dire, they are in desperate need of aid. Crisis Aid representative in Ache is helping as many of these poor families as possible but your donations are needed to continue this.
Rusmin is 66 years old living with his wife Ruslaini. Rusmin was crippled when he had a stroke two years ago. As a result, he is unable to move or work and the couple are very poor, living in a small wooden house next to the orphanage/Islamic boarding school in Paroy village, Aceh. After years of sitting in darkness, they only got electricity in their house a few months ago for the first time.
Mohammed Shaleh is 80 years old living with his 70-year-old wife Wagirah. They live in Paroy village in Aceh and are very poor. Mohammed cleans the village mosque for just £5 per month, sometimes even less than that. At the age of 80, he still does manual labour work to make ends meet, such as maintaining gardens, helping pull the fisherman’s net and chopping down bushes and trees. His physically challenging lifestyle is in stark contrast to his weak and fragile body.
