Milanda in Palu
May 23, 2022
When Milanda arrived to the Palu Nomoni Festival, she was expecting a good day of sales, like in previous years. However, at the end of that evening, the young Indonesian counted herself fortunate to be among the survivors of a 7.2 magnitude earthquake and tsunami that struck in Palu, Indonesia. “When the products I had arranged began falling at once I spontaneously jumped onto the street. Then I heard people started to shout very loudly, tsunami…tsunami!” she said. Read Milanda’s story on the third ‘UNDP Tsunami Story Book’.
