Pak Yunus' story: help for small farmer

Pak Yunus with one of his new kidsPak Yunus (60) who lives outside Gugop, in Pulo Aceh, Indonesia, re-established his small farm by building a fence from the driftwood washed up by the huge wave.

He received a cash grant from the British Red Cross, which he used to buy chicken wire for his fence which has kept his goats from straying.

“My life is now going very well,” he said. “My goats have had kids and I am planting more chillis and cocoa.”
