On December 22, 2018, a devastating tsunami struck the coasts of Pandeglang and South Lampung, triggered by the eruption of Mount Anak Krakatau in the Sunda Strait. The catastrophe resulted in significant loss and destruction: 426 fatalities, 7,202 injuries, 23 individuals reported missing, 40,386 people displaced, and approximately 1,300 homes demolished by the powerful waves. Amidst this tragedy, I was deployed as part of a Humedica Emergency Medical Team collaborating with the local Karya Alpha Omega Foundation to provide urgent assistance to the affected communities. These poignant images capture the plight of displaced families and survivors who sought refuge and medical aid in the aftermath of the disaster. Despite enduring injuries, homelessness, and the loss of loved ones, their resilient spirit and faith in destiny have enabled them to find solace in their survival amidst the devastation.
