Banda Aceh Tsunami


Banda Aceh

The Korean Medical Association has been in Banda Aceh since the tragic events of the December 26 Tsunami. These dedicated Korean doctors and medical students were among the first into the region offering aid to the thousands that had been affected by the natural disaster.

The KMA has sent, to date, 4 teams to Banda Aceh. Many of those that have been dispatched to the region have been medical students and internists. For some this has also been their first international trip.

The KMA medical team located opposite the Japanese Army camp provides medical care 6 hours a day, 7 days a week, unlike the Japanese contingent that shuts down its camp after lunch.
