Displaced Bangui Residents Plan to Return Home Despite Challenges
Central African Republic - IOM’s seventh IDP Return Intention Survey indicates that 80 per cent of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Bangui, Central African Republic (CAR) intend to  return to their areas of origin in the next month. The survey was conducted 10th -15th July with 606 IDPs at 29 IDP sites around the capital.

The number of people who indicated an intention to return in this July survey represents a 14 per cent increase from the June survey. The percentage of respondents who said they would like to stay at their displacement site dropped from 36 per cent to 6 per cent.

The survey also indicates that despite IDPs’ desire to return, many obstacles remain. The most widely cited reason preventing return was the theft of belongings (74 per cent). Additional reasons preventing return include lack of financial means to return home, the absence of authorities, and not feeling safe (all cited by 68 per cent of respondents).

IOM Facilitates Land Distribution for Displaced People in Kabo, Central African Republic
Central African Republic - Local authorities in Kabo, Central African Republic (CAR) conducted a land distribution ceremony on 2nd August to grant 193 household plots to internally displaced persons (IDPs) and their families who fled the PK12 neighborhood in Bangui earlier this year.

Community leaders drew numbers to randomly assign the 25 x 25 meter plots to PK12 households in need of land on which to build new homes.

Kabo Mayor Abdel Atif named the area “The Peace Village” and formally welcomed the PK12 community to make Kabo their new home.

“This land distribution cements the inclusion of the PK12 community in Kabo. I am very moved to oversee this important ceremony. We now begin to build the new houses in solidarity,” said Mayor Atif.

Most of the IDPs have been temporarily living in long communal tents designed for 80 persons each: eight in Kabo and 18 in Moyen-Sido constructed by the NGO Solidarité in cooperation with IOM. Others have been living with host families.

Islamic Relief Worldwide, IOM Distribute Food for Eid in Divided Boda
 Central African Republic - IOM and Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW) have distributed 6,000 food parcels to internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the town of Boda, Central African Republic (CAR).
