The Nduga Refugee School

In Wamena, the capital city of Wijaya, Papua, the fate of 627 elementary school, middle school, high school, and senior high school students are of high concern due to because there is no attention because it is not humanitarian aid

Since the beginning of the war between the Indonesian Army (TNIP PORI) and the West Papua Liberation Army (TPNPB) in the Ndugawa government area, the local government has failed to give attention to the welfare of the students.

Church initiatives and volunteers were able to build emergency schools with minimal materials but it was not enough to accommodate all students. The buildings, school furniture facilities, and other equipment such as curries, desks, and textbooks were limited.

As of writing, local and provincial governments of Papua have not given attention to the refugees in Wamena, Jaya Wijaya Regency, Kuyawaki, Lany Jaya Regency, Asmat Asmat Regency, Timika, Timika Regency, and other places that the Ndugwa Refugee Volunteer Team were not able to cover.

The Ndugwa Refugee volunteers are also in need of support from UN agencies and parties who are concerned about humanitarian values at local, national, and international levels.
