Since January 2012 the acceleration of military operations against militants in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) and parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Province has caused large-scale displacements across the region. At present, there are three registered Internally Displaced People (IDP) camps operating: Jalozai in District Nowshera; Togh Sarai in District Hangu of KP; and New Durrani in Kurram Agency, FATA. Currently 180,574 families comprising 848,698 persons are internally displaced in KP and FATA due to the continued conflicts, of which 17,274 families (10%) are living in camps and 163,300 families (90%) are living off-camp in host communities.
The emergency response aims to address the most urgent needs of 2,000 internally-displaced households as life-saving assistance. CWS-P/A has been able to distribute 524 food packages among the conflict affected families of Tirah valley who have not received any assistance from any other organization. For this specific project distribution, CWS-P/A select SEED (Social Efforts for Education and Development) as its implementing partner.
