At the entrance of the camp

The long wooden jetty leading to the center of the island named Pulau Babi Tengah, more commonly referred to as simply "Pulau Tengah".
  • On the left is the big Committee office where refugee interviews took place.
  • Beyond the jetty are 3 big camps where each family had their own spaces. Some of them were stranded on the island for 2 years.
  • Up on the hill to the left is the Malaysian Police house where the guards/soldiers slept.
  • On the right is the well which supplied the camp's water. Next to it is a row of 10 small shower stalls, without running water. Bathers brought water in buckets.
