Ambassador Blake Commemorates 10 Year Anniversary of Indian Ocean Tsunami

On the evening of December 3, the Ambassador welcomed more than 90 students, activists, and media to @america for a screening and panel discussion of After the Tsunami, a short documentary about 75 Fulbright Aceh Fellowship students. The film followed four Fulbright students to Arkansas and Texas and documented their return to Aceh, where they rebuilt schools, governments, and civil society. Panelists included Fulbright Aceh alumni as well as Acehnese activists who worked on recovery efforts. Before the film screening, Ambassador Blake also highlighted U.S. contributions to recovery efforts and helped to commemorate the anniversary with a moment of silence.
