No single international organisation has the sole responsibility of providing humanitarian assistance and protection to IDPs. However, in some cases, various international organisations have come to ameliorate the plight of IDPs where national governments are overwhelmed. The 2007 December PEV in Kenya led to massive displacement of people. This was viewed as a problem which was impacting negatively on the productive sectors like tourism, trade, and general investment. The Operation Rudi Nyumbani Programme was launched in May 2008 with an aim of impressing the international community that all was well in Kenya. The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) was one of the organisations involved in the resettlement of IDPs in Turbo, Kenya. It launched a Shelter and Livelihoods for Peace and Reconciliation project to help the IDPs return home, restore their livelihoods and achieve lasting peace and reconciliation.
