ARF Director daily activities in Aceh

It has been more than a week since ARF Director, Dr. Mazalan Kamis, arrived in Aceh. Mazalan is further promoting the people-to-people connection so that ARF will have greater accessibility to various communities and other social infrastructure in Aceh. Despite having difficulties accessing the Internet in Aceh, he has been able to regularly send his journal updates. From his journal, we know that Mazalan has been able to meet numerous local Acehnese NGOs, school administrators, village heads, and individual victims of the tsunami. He has an extremely tight schedule for his two week stay in Aceh. Check our website often to follow Mazalan's daily work in Aceh.

Visit to Aceh by ARF Director

Continuing the effort started by Kelly and Kari, Dr. Mazalan Kamis will visit Aceh beginning April 10th. Mazalan will depart Ithaca on April 6th and arrive in Singapore on April 8th. He will continue to Kuala Lumpur where he plans to rest for a day before continuing his journey to Medan and Aceh.

Mazalan will further promote the people-to-people connection so that ARF will have greater accessibility to various communities and other social infrastructure in Aceh in order to offer wider assistance to them. He will meet and hold several workshops with Acehnese volunteer groups affiliated to ARF. In addition, he plans to visit schools and hold discussions with the schools’ administrators for possible link-ups with schools in the US for ARF’s sister-school program. Mazalan will also have the opportunity to visit the village that ARF plans to adopt.

Mazalan’s trip is made possible in part by Mr. John Freideborn of Ithaca NY who donated a return ticket to Singapore. The remainder of the journey is self-sponsored by Mazalan. He will be in Aceh for about two weeks.

Mazalan will also post his daily journal to this site during his travels and stay in Aceh. Please visit our website often to follow his journey.

You are also invited to post questions related to the trip. The questions will be forwarded to Mazalan (and Saiful) in Aceh.
