Pakistan Crisis: 1 Million internally displaced

50,000 internal refugees. UN says, a million on the move

Tens of thousands of people have been displaced from the districts of Buner and Lower Dir in the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) since fighting flared in northern Pakistan last month. The government is preparing for up to 500,000 internal refugees, the largest displacement crisis in Pakistan's history.

* According to UNHCR (UN High Commissioner for Refugees), in the Swat Valley some 200,000 people had been displaced already and another 300,000 were on the move or about to flee. Added to the more than 550,000 internally displaced in the refugee camps, the crisis threatens to be the largest man-made humanitarian disaster in Pakistan's post-independence history.

Families receive jerry cans to carry water from Muslim Aid

But with the conflict zone itself having become a no-go area for relief agencies, Muslim Aid is concentrating on providing essential life support to those in the refugee camps. Shelter, food, utensils, clean water and medical supplies are urgently needed.

So far Muslim Aid has provided:

• 200 tents for internally displaced families that can accommodate a family of 6/7 benefiting up to 2,500 people.
• Non food items to 1,000 families such as utensils, clothes, jerry cans and blankets.
• 800 mattresses and 500 kitchen sets have already been distributed.
• An emergency medical tent where a 1,000 patients will be treated with basic medical supplies.
