INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Dompet Dhuafa and PAHAM Indonesia are partnering to find solutions for refugees as well as encourage all stakeholders to quickly develop mechanisms for handling refugees and asylum seekers in education and health.

"So that the cooperation of PAHAM Indonesia and Dompet Dhuafa will support the development and strengthening of the mechanism and involve the Indonesian government, zakat institutions, humanitarian agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), plus IHRA (Initiative for Human Rights in Asia)," said Dompet Dhuafa Sabeth Abilawa in Jakarta, Thursday (26/4/2018).

He said DD synergize and collaborate with national and international institutions to solve problems for the refugees.

"Dompet Dhuafa in the framework of 25 years continues to work together and become a driver in humanitarian cases in the international world," he said.

Indonesia, he said, although not yet ratified the UN Convention 1951 related to refugees and asylum seekers still need to be encouraged by continuous, planned and systematic efforts and regulations.

In responding to the issue of refugees and asylum seekers whose condition is quite apprehensive, he continued, Dompet Dhuafa rolled out "School for Refugees" to provide positive activities as a form of trauma healing as well as learning Indonesian for refugee children.

"In addition, Dompet Dhuafa is working with UNHCR to facilitate the basic health of refugees, with the aim of reducing maternal mortality in childbirth," he said.

According to data from the Directorate General of Immigration at the Ministry of Human Rights and Law, there are 14,364 refugees and asylum seekers in Indonesia by 2017. About 1,958 refugees live in the Immigration Detention Center, 2,062 in the Immigration Office and 32 in the Immigration Directorate.

Then 4,478 refugees also lived in community homes and 5,382 refugees alive as independent refugees.

"The refugee problem is the result of a humanitarian crisis in their home country, for example, the humanitarian crisis in Myanmar that has affected ethnic Rohingya, an ethnic minority in Myanmar," he said.

In addition, he said, there are refugees who are likely to flee due to military and government oppression of ethnic Muslim minorities in southern Thailand and the southern Philippines. (Ant)
