The Humanitarian Mission in former Caputia (HMFC; Craitish: Hjumanitäriähn Misión yhn fórmór Caputija; Hoennese: 舊頭地於人道帶 (Kyu Dzuchi ni Okeru Jindote, KDOJ); Krasnocorian Cyrillic: Хуманитарна Мисија у бившој Капутији, ХМБК; Martino: Misión Humanitaria en la ex Caputia, MHEC; Palesmenian: Húmarisety Musíno en Aúskahrí Caputa, HMAC; Swedish: Humanitära uppdraget i forna Caputia, HUFC;) is the special humanitarian mission implemented by the Craitish and Krasnocorian and Norrlandic forces, later joined by the Hoennese, a limited number of Palesmenians and Los Liberados (in San Pedro), after the fall of Caputia's government and the outbreak of the Haifan Civil War. The goal of the mission is to prevent all conflicts in the regions where the joint-peacekeeping force is present, and to soften economic impacts that are directly negatively affecting the lives of citizens. Part of the significance of the HMFC lies in it being the first significant military action by a force assembled by the non-aligned powers of Micras since the world war between the Raspur Pact and USSO bloc.
The current tasks of the HMFC are following:
- to prevent all conflicts between anti-Bassarid and pro-Bassarid sides;
- to assist displaced persons, refugees and citizens whose everyday lives are hardened by the political and economic crisis;
- medical assistance;
- security and public order;
- support for the establishment of civilian institutions.
(San Pedro only)
- In late January (A.N. 1668), the government of Los Liberados announced its plans for a humanitarian intervention in San Pedro, in order to rescue the population from the expected disasters of the Haifan Civil War. The Liberadosan government, together with the Iron Company and supported by the member states of the Batavian Confederation set up a 3-step plan for humanitarian intervention. The first would be to establish a quick route of transport both over seas and by air, the second would be to stabilise the San Pedrovian borders, and the third step would be the evacuation of the roughly 400,000 people still residing in San Pedro by the end of 1668. By mid-1669, the mission had entered stage 3, and over 150,000 people have so far been evacuated from San Pedro to Los Liberados.
- Under the initiative of Krasnocorian and Craitish Ministries of Defence, the Humanitarian Mission in former Caputia was established.
- Krasnocorian Air Force cargo planes arrive in Zalae, establishing camp at the International Airport.
- First cargo ships with humanitarian aid arrive in Zalae.
- Part of HMFC forces established convoy and directed it towards Weanburg.
- Convoy stopped at the entrance in the city by the local forces.
- Part of aid was let through after negotiations, while the rest was requested to retreat back. It was shortly done to avoid possible bloodshed.
- Hoennese-led HMFC airlift lands at Weanburg and begins distributing aid.
- Norrlandic Army joins the mission.
- Constancia debates the contribution of a volunteer force to support the HMFC as part of a resolution put before the Synklētos advocating the acceptance of Caputian and Wechua refugees into the country .
- The House of Carrillo offers ₦100 million towards meeting the spiralling funding requirements of the relief effort.
- The Liberadosan government annexes the territory of Corcovado in former San Pedro to aid the mission, and to establish an air bridge.
- Palesmenian–Hoennese airlifts drop supplies into the cities of Kedah and San Luis. Unable to bypass the blockade which had been imposed upon the island of Hoenn, the Hoennese aircraft were prevented from supporting the Palesmenian forces in their mission. The Palesmenian forces were able to complete their mission without Hoennese support. This lead to an escalation of conflict between the Bassarids and Hoenn.
- The Synkletos of Constancia adopts the aforesaid resolution. Caputian, Wechuan, and other Keltian refugees are granted entry, resettlement, and asylum in the Imperial State.
- Krasnocorian Ministry of Foreign Affairs called on a massive migration of internally displaced persons of Krasnocorian origin. Roughly 8 million people are advised to move to the territories protected by HMFC, while the rest would be evacuated to the mainland.
- Hoennese settlers of Niijima affected by the Bassarid blockade begin to trickle into Kalgachia, Nova England, and Ralgon with the help of blockade-running ships like the Jolly Froyalaner.
- First wave of internally displaced persons of Krasnocorian origin arrive at various locations.
- In a rare move of this kind, the Ralgon Imperial Palace issues an edict providing special protections within the Ralgon nation for Hoennese refugees trapped outside of their homeland, or otherwise adversely affected by the blockade. Otherwise, the Ralgons have yet to take unilateral action in the conflict.
- Maximinus Kerularios, a prominent Constancian industrialist and founder of Kerularios & Company, known to have been missing since the collapse of the Caputian Union, is rescued from an insurgent safe-house in downtown Zalae by an ESB extraction team. Details are sparse but the appearance of three vehicles of unknown configuration, backed by another craft said to resemble a "flying saucer", over the city suggests the support of at least one of the major powers for the operation.
