The date September 29 is a special day for six families because they were returning back to their home town for the first time since 11 years ago when they fled due to the political situation in East Timor.
Since 2004 they just kept their willingness inside their heart because they didn’t know how to go back to their home town with all their belongings. It was actually easy for them to cross illegally but to sustain their life and property they needed to bring all their belongings to their home town.
Finally they found CIS (Center of IDP Service) one of the local NGOs that takes care of the refugees who fled to the West side. After all the necessary tasks undertaken, on Saturday, September 29, 2012, around 12am, they left the Indonesian border side with smiles, bringing with them memories when they were refugees, and return with the status as ex refugee. Yeah, it was hard for them also to leave behind their friends and family members also, but this was already their final decision, and they had chosen to leave Indonesia.
Happiness, sadness is normal, so as a human being we must accept everything.
We are just small people who try to help them a little, but at least this small action can bring back the smiles and laughter to the families.
Their just small number of families we can see, but actually still many families try to looking for the way back we still can’t reach them because of our capacity not enough but we hope.
I can’t shared too much but you can see from their picture and just imagine how much their feeling
