Report: Relief Activities by Civil Society Islamabad

Posted on/at 1:26 AM by IDP Relief

By Civil Society Islamabad

All of you who generously contributed for the displaced brothers and sisters from Swat, Buner and other areas where the operation is going on, will be pleased to know that their gifts have been distributed in four schools in Jalala Mardan. The local MPA and the Peshawar office of Human Rights Commission of Pakistan suggested we focus our attention on those IDPs who are still deprived of any kind of assistance, especially those
who are residing in rented houses, with their relatives and schools because the offical data collected from the office of the Mardan commissioner, Muhammad Khalid Khan, shows that out of the total 315,000 IDPs in Mardan only 56,000 could be accommodated in the camps. So the larger portion of the displaced persons is not in camps and that too with no attention of the media, civil society organisations and government authorities.

We distributed stuff in four schools and will continue doing so as long as you all are donating so generously.The Jalala camp in Mardan is full and no more IDPs are registered. The over spill of the IDPs have been accomodated in different schools where we dilevered your gifts. Please below find the PHOTO STORY of how the goods were delivered. Keep up the good work !! Please do not stop!!!! There are many more IDPs to help. This is a small drop in the ocean but it can turn into an ocean by strenthenting the hands of credible institutions such as Edhi Foundation.
