Violence has been ongoing between tribes in the village of Mamdayawang on the province of Papua, Indonesia, since July 24, 2013.
Women and children who live in the village have sought temporary shelter in other areas. The center coordinator and partnership facilitator for Mamda Yawan Bersaksi Student Center (ID-426) have decided to temporarily suspend program activities until this situation is resolved. Currently, no children from ID-426 have been affected.
Please pray that this situation will be quickly and peacefully resolved. Please pray for the protection of our children in this village.
Compassion East Indonesia will keep us updated as more information is available.
