Dhuvaafaru island is located in Raa Atoll and is home to nearly 4900 people. Dhuvaafaru was uninhabited until resettlement of the island started on 14 December 2008 to inhabit the displaced residents of Kandholhudhoo Island in Raa Atoll, who were the victims of the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and Tsunami. Dhuvaafaru was officially inaugurated as an inhabited island by former President Mohamed Nasheed on 2 March 2009.
