Gov’t sends returnees home with Northern Command’s assistance

MYITGYINA- Government had sent the 15 internally displaced households comprising of 150 family members from the refugee camp to their home of Nansanyang village yesterday with the assistance of Northern Command Headquarter.
       Nansanyang villagers are officially registered as Internal Displaced Persons (IDPs) at the refugee camps but they are now sheltering at their own homes and relatives’ houses.
       At present, there are 42 IDP households that had returned to Nansanyang village.
       “We had cleared landmines and rubbish at the village [Nansanyang]. At present, there are 15 households, comprising of 150 family members, that had returned to the village. We supported them with one-month ration and utensils for the IDPs. We, the military, helped in the cleaning services at their homes. We have plans to help the returnees as much as we can,” said Col. Tun Nay Lin from Northern Command Headquarter.
       “The authorities helped us returned. But, houses have not been fully rebuilt. We had own farms in the village. But now that my family of three will return to the village, little cattle are left at the village,” said Nan Aye who will return to the Nansanyang village.
       There are hundreds of houses in the Nansanyang village situated on Myitgyina-Laizar-Bhamaw road section.
       Fighting between the military and Kachin Independence Army (KIA) took place near Nansanyang village in Kachin State starting on June 9th of 2011, prompting the whole village including a monastery and a church to flee to safer places.
       Later, over 40,000 people across 300 villages fled to government controlled areas while more than 60,000 villagers ran towards to KIA’s controlled region and have been sheltering at refugee camps nearly 8 years.
       The government carried out resettlement activities at Ngwe Pyaw Model village in Myitgyina Township, near Yaykhu Mankham village, in Mansi Township, Bhamaw district and Mongnar village in Waimaw Township.
       The first returnees are from the Sankin village, Tarlawgyi station and totaling 15 households comprising 83 family members were returning on December 1st in 2013.
       Later, there were 42 IDPs sheltering at the Swanbrabon Township returning on March 31st and 192 IDPs in Lwejel, Moemauk Township, Bhamaw District on October 62 in 2014.
