Nat Geo Documentary Helps Port Worker Save Hundreds of Lives

Abdul Rezzak, a port official on the Andaman island of Teresa, saved hundreds of lives during the tsunami because he remembered two documentaries on tsunamis that he had seen the previous year on the National Geographic Channel. The two documentaries described the warning signs of a tsunami, so when Rezzak realized the port was experiencing these signs, he and his colleagues alerted hundreds of villagers, making them run nearly two kilometers up from shore. Because of Rezzak's actions, only three villagers died during the tsunami.

Dear brothers and sisters,
We are desperately in need of your help; we need your financial help to help these poor fisher man families to build their houses and to fix their boats so that they can stand on their feet. We are currently in the process of building a temporary shelter, so that these poor victims can be temporarily replaced from mosques and schools where they can have some privacy. Please help us in our effort; please send us your donations to
