An estimated 1.4 million Afghans need life-saving assistance in the coming months, due to severe drought caused by La Niña climate conditions. “Water wells have run dry, crops are lost, livestock is dying. Farmers are forced to leave their villages”, says Abdur Rauf, humanitarian program coordinator for Cordaid in Kabul.
In February, tens of thousands of unregistered Afghan refugees forcibly went back to fragile areas in Afghanistan. To address their needs and those of other displaced families, Cordaid expands its response in Nangarhar and Urozgan provinces. At the same time, we urge governments not to forcibly return Afghan citizens.
Shangla is a mountainous, isolated district in the North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan with a population of approximately 800,000. The main town is Alpuri, where the district headquarters are located, while it is divided into two sub-divisions namely Alpuri and Puran. Puran is presently "no-go" area as clashes between militants and the army are ongoing. Shangla has the lowest Human Development index in NWFP province and the second lowest in the country.
