Bhakti Luhur Tsunami project IE-004
Soon after the Tsunami on December 26 2004 many questions reached WoS whether we were to support Giro 555.
This kind of help however, does not fall within our vision of aid. This is why we wanted to do something else and are happy to be able to help in conjunction with PZG and Aircares. Together with these organizations, Sharing Success and the Liliane Fund, WoS will build a revalidation and rehabilitation centre in Medan, North Sumatra. There, revalidation, rehabilitation and if necessary shelter will be offered to handicapped children from mainly the tsunami areas. After revalidation the children will return to their own living environment.
Furthermore, a mini-van will be purchased which will be used as a mobile medical unit. This mini-van will drive around the area of Banda Aceh to visit the known as well as search for unknown handicapped children. With this medical unit direct medical help can be offered. Also a part of the current costs for the project in Banda Aceh will be financed.

How to get there
For crew it is hardly possible to visit this project from a KLM slipstation. From KUL and SIN it can be done on a long stop but you will need to purchase tickets and a visa. Visa can be arranged on arrival at the airport in Medan. For further information you can contact Ron van Wagtendonk. Name : Yayasan Bhakti Luhur “Biru Nan Aman/Blue Arc” Address : Jl.
