There are some IDPs center in Muntilan Sub – District. Muntilan Parish and Van Lith High School are the major IDPs center. In both post, there are almost 3.000 IDPs and the number will be increasing since Merapi Eruption is still unpredictable.

There are many more IDPs center spread over Yogyakarta, Klaten District, Magelang District, and Boyolali District. It is almost impossible to collect data all the IDPs center.
