To resolve conflicts and promote harmony among different communities, meetings with village chiefs and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) have been held. These discussions aim to address grievances, bridge divides, and establish a platform for constructive dialogue.
Furthermore, relief camps have been set up to provide shelter and assistance to those who have been affected by the unrest. Currently, a total of 37,450 individuals have sought refuge in 272 relief camps across various districts. These camps, including local community halls and other facilities, offer a safe space for those displaced by the violence.
