97 IDP families return home

MINISTRY OF SOCIAL SOLIDARITY

PRESS RELEASE

28 March 2008

On 25 March, as part of the government’s Hamutuk
Hari’i Futuru national recovery strategy, 92
families from Canossa Has Laran, 3 families from
Bombeiros, 1 family from Bairro Pite and 1 family
from the CARE Compound camps were assisted to return to their homes.

Since the commencement of the program, a total of
321 IDP families have returned and received
recovery packages under the Hamutuk Hari’i Uma program.

According to Minister for Social Solidarity,
Maria Domingas Alves, “the return of these
families is a result of the Ministry’s ongoing
hard work to help those IDPs who are willing and
able to return home to do so.” Each of the
families who returned today had received a
recovery grant from the Ministry of Social
Solidarity to help them rebuild or repair their
homes. Each person, including children, also
received 16 kg of rice. The families were
assisted to return with transport provided by the
Ministry of Social Solidarity.

Carlos Correia, a resident of Canossa Has Laran
camp, thanked the government for facilitating his
family’s return. “I am not afraid to return
because I trust the government’s
program”. Another resident of Canossa Has Laran,
Pasquela Sequeira said “we are ready to return,
and we are no longer scared, but we hope the
government will continue to provide us with
security.” To ensure safety upon returns MSS has
requested PNTL and UNPol patrols during the first few nights after return.

It is anticipated that 131 families (708 people)
will move back to Ermera district from Liquica,
Gleno and Central Pharmacy on Saturday.

The next camp to be assisted to return will be
the Hospital Camp. MSS staff have completed
receiving information, and are currently entering
this information into the database. Amandio
Amaral Freitas, General Coordinator of the
Hamutuk Hari’i Futuru program confirmed
“verification of this information will commence
today. It is hoped that some IDPs can commence
returning from the Hospital within two weeks.
Those who are unable to return to their house
from the hospital, and are verified as having
been displaced, will be provided with temporary
housing in the new transitional housing at Becora market.”

As of 25 March, a total of 5,789 families from 15
camps and four suco offices have given detailed
information about their families and their wishes
for resettlement. MSS is aiming to complete the
rest of the registrations by June.

Secretary of State for Social Assistance and
Natural Disasters said “we know that some people
have lost the numbers assigned to them in the
mapping process. At the moment MSS is giving
priority to people that registered with
Levantamento de Dados and still have that
information. Please only respect the forms that
the MSS civil servants are carrying, and that you
fill out in the required location. People who
will be doing the registration will be carrying
MSS ID cards and wearing Hamutuk Hari’i Futuru T-shirts.”
