She also strives to reintegrate former women combatants back into society. She is actively engaged in humanitarian aid and assist in refugee camps in North and South Aceh and Pidie. Alone or with a team, often with only a motorbike, Rahmatan travels to remote places in Aceh that have been impacted with violence and massacre in order to help.
