After a natural disaster on the scale of the tsunami people frequently go into shock. Some are unable to function and lose the survival insinct to find food and shelter. MSFâ€™s activities in Aceh have demonstrated the important role psychological support plays in any emergency response to natural disasters resulting in massive loss of life and livelihood.
How is the local population facing the daily life two years after the tsunami? Do they still suffer from psychological troubles, have they been relocated, do they work? I have photographed and interviewed 10 families, some were MSF patients, to try and understand how Banda Aceh, the most affected area by the tsunami, is moving to a new life.
