The return process is seeing an influx of IDPs flowing back in to their barangays when the government opened up the first cluster of nine barangays last October 29. The second cluster of an additional 14 barangays began welcoming back its residents last November 20, with all but four barangays (Bubong, Lilud Saduc, Saduc Proper, Raya Saduc) having returned as of November 23. The first two clusters saw the return of 13,820 families. This is certainly a huge step into the crisis response, of which the primary goal is to restore families into their places of origin. However, it is important to note that they comprise only 18% of the total number of families displaced. This posits that shelter issues will remain until they have fully dissolved from being settlement sites for IDPs.
