Following a volcano eruption on Kadovar Island on the 5th of January 2018, Kadovar islanders were temporarily evacuated to safety on Ruprup Island before their relocation to Dandan care centre between 14th and 16th January. 567 IDPs (106 displaced households) were recorded in the center, with 49% of the IDP population being females and 46% being children. Main immediate needs include food, nutritional supplements for children under five years old, aqua tabs, hygiene kits and potable water.
