Six weeks after the start of Pakistan's worst floods in over 80 years, millions of people continue to depend on assistance as their homes, possessions and livelihoods have been washed away by flood waters. In Khyber Paktunkhwa (KPK) province flood waters have receded, yet more than 900,000 people remain displaced. Health facilities, schools, and other public buildings that are still intact are serving as temporary shelters for those displaced by the floods.
July 2, 2009, Los Angeles, Calif. - In a recent assessment of displaced persons living in Chota Lahore Camp (Yar Hussain Mera) in Swabi District, Pakistan, International Medical Corps found that financial hardship and depression are two of the most pressing issues facing the displaced. The assessment, which involved focus groups of displaced males and females between 10 and 60 years of age, also found that the majority of displaced are eager to return home, but fear doing so for lack of resources to rebuild their lives.
Approximately 2.3 million people have been displaced since May 2 by conflict in the North- West Frontier Province (NWFP), Pakistan in what UN officials are calling "the largest and swiftest" displacement crisis to take place anywhere in the world in recent years. Civilians continue to flood out of conflict zones on a daily basis. To date, the majority of displaced are residing with host families in neighboring districts and approximately 130,950 are staying in a total of 16 camps throughout the region.
