In the wake of the tsunami, a nurse and
her daughter aided survivors
Late in December, shortly after the tsunami hit South Asia, Sun
Chang, a nurse on Halsted 8, and her daughter Jenny were following
the story on CNN. Sitting in the living room of their North Baltimore
home, taking in the appalling scenes of destruction half a world
away, the two looked at one another with a single thought: We
have to go.
As luck would have it, days later, through a local church, the
Changs learned of a relief organization that was sending short-term
medical teams to Banda Aceh and isolated villages along the shores
of northern Sumatra, Indonesia.
