When SurfAid co-founder Dr. Dave Jenkins step foot on the Mentawai Islands in 1999 he encountered almost an entire population, including a disproportionate amount of children, dead and dying of treatable diseases such as worms, anemia, malnutrition, pneumonia, tuberculosis and malaria. Matters were made worse after the 2004 tsunami which decimated entire villages. Photo courtesy of Randal Schober
