Clay Aiken – Video Diary of Banda Aceh

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.

The following video is from the Insider on April 5th.

  1. Clay Aiken has gone to many countries to help in times of major disasters. I am so proud of him. I also have to mention that he sure was looking good in that video. Lol!

  2. Like kta, I see the importance of re-living this experience. I cannot even begin to understand what the emotional experience it must have been to visit there.

    Thank you for putting this up.

  3. Musicfan,

    Clay Aiken is "Tried and True" in so many areas of life. The Banda Aceh UNICEF trip is just one outstanding example. Thank you for sharing in this entry.

    Thank you, too, for your kind remark in the Carolina blog. Have a great week!


  4. I love seeing Clay Aiken in ANY video, but I especially love the ones where he is calling attention to others, especially children, who have been affected by disaster.
