EI organises tour of tsunami-hit areas for students

published 21 February 2007 updated 21 February 2007

EI has organised a tour for twelve students from Japan, Australia, the UK and the Netherlands to the tsunami-hit areas of Aceh in Indonesia from 19-24 February. The students were selected from schools which contributed to the EI Solidarity Fund for the Tsunami Rehabilitation Programme.

The young people will witness at first hand the rebuilding process currently taking place there and visit schools which EI helped to build.

Their experiences can be read on the tour's blogsite: http://tsunamitour.blogspot.com

Photos and anecdotes from their daily adventures can be found on the site, where family and friends can also leave them messages.
