East Timor Ministry of Social Solidarity: Reintegration of IDPs living in Baucau camps

PRESS RELEASE 15 December 2008

Reintegration of IDPs living in Baucau camps

On 11 December, the Minister of Social Solidarity, Maria Domingas Fernandes Alves, visited Baucau to announce that MSS would commence the reintegration of IDPs from the Baucau IDP camps.

A total of 151 IDP families registered under Hamutuk Hari’i Futuru programme as having been displaced to Baucau as a result of the 2006 crisis. On 11 December MSS assisted 9 IDP families from the Baucau camps to return to their homes in other sub-districts of Baucau. On 12 December IOM provided transport for 22 families to return to Dili. On 15 December MSS and CRS provided transport for 40 families to return to Dili.

The Minister thanked the Camp Managers for their work in the seven Baucau IDP camps over the past two and a half years. She also thanked CRS for providing the Baucau camps with humanitarian assistance, and UNICEF for their water and sanitation support to the camps. The Minister also thanked IOM for assisting with the camp movements and UNPol for providing security.

The District Administrator of Baucau thanked MSS for assisting to reintegrate the people who had been displaced to Baucau. The Minister of Social Solidarity, Maria Domingas Fernandes Alves, explained that “security must commence with you and your families. You must work with your neighbours to ensure your own neighbourhoods are safe. If you do not feel it is safe to go home you do not have to go yet. You can stay here or move into transitional housing. The MSS/UNDP Dialogue teams are also available to help you resolve your problems.” The Minister also thanked the Baucau victims for their patience until now, and expressed the hope that they would use their recovery grants wisely to rebuild or repair their houses which were destroyed during the crisis, in line with the Hamutuk Hari’i Futuru National Recovery Strategy.

With the return of IDPs from the Baucau camps more than 10,500 IDP families will have received a recovery or reintegration package under the Hamutuk Hari’i Futuru National Recovery Strategy. A total of 42 IDP camps are now closed.
