ISLAMABAD (APP) - The United Nations has said that the total number of IDPs in the turbulent NWFP and Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) has not been ascertained as yet, but it is feared to increase further. In prevailing circumstances, the UN has increased its assistance to cater the needs of another 1,000 families of Internally Displaced Persons in the Jalozai Camp in Nowshera and is preparing for another 5,000 families. In close collaboration with the National Disaster Management Authority, the UN agencies have set up two additional camps in Mardan (Sheikh Shehzad and Jalala) and one in Swabi (Yar Hussain). According to a press release issued on Monday, 123 additional families living in the camps and around 2,260 families outside the camps in Swabi and Mardan have been registered recently. Soon after the arrival of migrant persons, basic facilities like shelter, food, water, sanitation and hygiene, health and education are being provided to them. Different UN organs including UNICEF, WHO, UNFPA, UNHCR, WFP, UNHABITAT, and UNESCO along with various NGOs and international agencies are working in close association for ensuring relief for the IDPs. To meet the challenge of remedying the human sufferings, the Commissioner Mardan Division has identified three more possible campsites and UNHCR is assessing the sites for this purpose. In addition to the assistance being provided in camps for the newly displaced people, apart from other humanitarian services, doctors are also providing health services in assistance with WHO and UNFPA in Dir. The United Nations is also looking at ways and means to deliver relief items in the conflict zone through local NGOs as well. Fikret Akcura, Resident Coordinator and Humanitarian Coordinator for the UN in Pakistan, has expressed his personal and professional commitment to ensure all possible relief to these people. The UN has been providing humanitarian assistance to IDPs in NWFP since late last year. Inspite of the exigent circumstances in the area, the agencies and clusters have been successful in meeting the priority needs of a majority of the displaced population. One-consignment of relief goods has already been supplied to 50,000 families (around 300,000 individuals). In February alone, food and other essential services were made available to 348,000 IDPs and conflict affected groups.
