Flood destroyed Bukit Lawang (Sumatra)

At the beginning of November 2003 a flood destroyed Bukit Lawang and killed many people. For me who really enjoyed the time there and met some great people quite a shock when I found out about it. One of the people killed was Rolan, the fantastic painter I met there.

All these people do still need help and support. There is a group of people from Bukit Lawang living overseas who are looking for donations for the people in Bukit Lawang, the address is, there you can find more information about the situation in Bukit Lawang and perhaps some of you might make a donation.
