On 12/26/04, an earthquake in the Indian Ocean caused a tsunami that left more than 122,000 dead and about 114,000 missing in Banda Aceh. On 3/14/05, Clay Aiken visited Banda Aceh, Indonesia. He was there as a Goodwill UNICEF ambassador to help bring awareness to the tsunami ravaged area.
While touring Indonesia three months after the tsunami devastated vast areas of South Asia, Clay witnessed and participated in UNICEF programs that helped children reconnect with their families, provided care for orphans, allowed children to return to school and helped prevent the spread of disease.
On April 5th, 2005, Clay was interviewed by Victoria Recando in the TV show, “The Insider.” Besides chatting with Clay, Victoria showed a personal video diary of Clay as he visited the Banda Aceh.
