The tsunami which devastated Bande Aceh on 26 December 2004 left 164,000 people dead or missing and over 400,000 homeless. It rapidly became the most reported and well-funded disaster in history. Over 200 humanitarian organizations - plus 3,000 military troops from a dozen countries - arrived to offer aid.
What is special about this tsunami is...the damage stretches across thousands of miles and involves millions of people. That produces a huge logistical challenge for international organizations and aid agencies: how to get relief supplies and, later, reconstruction assistance to so many places at more or less the same time
