Secretary of State for Natural Disasters, Social and Humanitarian Assistance

New transitional housing has been built in Becora market as part of the government’s “Hamutuk Hari’i Futuru” National Recovery Strategy.

The new transitional housing in Becora market is for people who were displaced from their homes because of the 2006 crisis and who are currently unable to return to their houses.

The new transitional housing is only for people who are living in the hospital IDP camp. This is because of reasons of health, security, and because of the hospital renovations.

If there are households who are unable to return to their houses, the entire household has to go to the transitional housing. We will not allow splitting of families. The members of households will have to come together and make a decision about where they will go together.

We have identified those families living in the hospital at the moment and we will give priority to them so we can liberate the hospital for everyone.

For all of those people who are able to go home, we will provide recovery packages to support their reintegration and repairs to their housing.

We will be checking and verifying with local authorities that everyone used to live in the house they said they did, whether they want to go home or not.

For those who were renting in the past and who lost their possessions: the government in this phase is only concentrating on re-housing people who were displaced. Subsequent government programs will be addressing the loss of possessions and the loss of business assets. But you are not eligible to go into transitional housing. Nor are you eligible to receive recovery packages for damage to the housing, because it did not belong to you.

The government hopes that this new transitional housing in Becora market will help provide a temporary solution to the problems faced by IDPs in the hospital. PNTL will be providing security at the transitional housing prior to IDPs moving there, and will continue to provide security while they live in the transitional housing.
