The Activist Doctor

Welcome to the 2006 season of Kuwento Kuwento!

Around this time last year, the world was reeling from news of the devastation caused by the tsunami in Southern Asia. The disaster killed more than 100,000 people in several countries and left more than half a million more homeless. Among the relief workers now helping the survivors rebuild their lives is a Filipino doctor, Jade Pena, a member of the Nobel Prize winning organization, Doctors Without Borders. A student activist during the Marcos years, Dr. Pena is currently in Acheh considered the worst hit area in the disaster. I caught up with Jade Pena shortly before Christmas last year.

In Part 1, she talks about the devastation and despair she found on the Indonesian island.
