DACAAR has successfully completed its “Provision of relief, assistance and livelihoods to returnees and vulnerable host communities in Afghanistan” project funded by the European Commission’s office of Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO). Between 1 June 2010 and 31 May 2011 DACAAR completed the implementation of the project based on ECHO’s funding of 1.2 million Euros.
The devastating floods in Pakistan have lead to international calls for emergency aid to victims. Among the groups affected by the flooding are Afghan refugees in Pakistan. In support of Afghan refugees, the Danish Committee for Aid to Afghan Refugees (DACAAR) is now assessing needs for emergency aid in the refugee camps in north-western Pakistan.
At least two refugee camps in Pakistan, which accommodated over 5,000 Afghan refugee families, have been washed away by floods.
After 22 years of continued work in support of Afghan refugees living in camps in the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) in Pakistan, DACAAR is closing down its last activities there.
Kabul, 27 October 2005 - Two DACAAR teams of water supply technicians and engineers are now sent to the Mansehra district in Pakistan.
Mansehra being close to the epicenter of the earthquake 8 October is one of the districts suffering from severe loss and damages, and with an urgent need to restore water supply facilities.
As a well positioned and experienced development agency in NWFP, North West Frontier Province of Pakistan, DACAAR has been requested by UNICEF to carry out emergency assistance after the earthquake.
Three NGOs have finalised a survey on the expected repatriation patterns of Afghan refugees living in the North West Frontier Province of Pakistan. 27 percent of the interviewed refugees are likely to return in 2002, but large parts of the communities have only vague plans for repatriation.
The Danish aid organisation DACAAR has started a survey to seek an answer to one of the key questions in Afghanistan this spring. Are the millions of refugees outside the country in the mood to go home and if so - where are they going?
Minister for development aid Anita Bay Bundegaard has granted 16 million DKK to DACAAR (Danish Committee for Aid to Afghan Refugees) - a consortium of Danish Refugee Council, Danish Association for International Co-operation and Danish People's Aid.
Danish aid work such as water supply, agricultural
development and production of building materials continue in Afghanistan
in spite of the fact that USA and its allies have been bombing Afghanistan
for more than one week.
Afghan staff of the Danish organisation DACAAR (Danish Committee for Aid to Afghan Refugees) has managed to keep activities running in Eastern, Southern and Western parts of the country.
The largest Danish aid organisation in Afghanistan, DACAAR (Danish Committee for Aid to Afghan Refugess), is still trying to keep its activities inside Afghanistan in operation after the attack of American and British forces on the country.
