United Nations humanitarian fund releases US$9.5 million for critical aid operations in North-Western Pakistan

(Islamabad, 10 April 2014): The United Nations' Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) has allocated US$9.5 million (920 million Pakistani rupees) to help meet the needs of the more than 1 million people who remain displaced in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) in Pakistan due to insecurity.

The funding comes at a crucial time, as significant humanitarian needs remain in KP and FATA, yet aid agencies have limited resources to meet those needs.
