Since 2013, AJAR has been organising reunions of “stolen children” and a total of 30 have been reunited with their families.  TimorLeste’s truth commission (CAVR), estimated that some 4,000 children were taken from their families and sent to Indonesia during the occupation. The CAVR made strong recommendations on finding and reuniting children separated during the conflict.
