A total of 250 police personnel from various units will be sent to Banda Aceh to provide assistance to the tsunami victims. The first batch of 125 personnel left for the devastated Indonesian province yesterday afternoon.
They called their group #8216;The Waves of Mercy#8217; and they are on a search and rescue mission to look for survivors and victims along the eastern shores of devastated Aceh that are difficult to reach by land.
Offers to provide medical aid to tsunami-hit Aceh have been coming in thick and fast to the Yayasan Salam Malaysia office in Petaling Jaya, with most of it from medical professionals.
