IDPs of Dargai(Malakand) Facing Real difficulties Dargai.(District Malakand) 30 K.m from Mardan
At a time when optimum attention is being paid to the internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the down districts, those displaced within Malakand Division have been ignored completely. It is a fact that 1.5 million people have shifted to the down districts â€” Swabi, Mardan and others. But the total population of Malakand Division is around four million. The rest have been displaced within the region, by shifting to the relatively calm areas. They are in dire need of food and non-food items as due to the prolonged curfew, there is an acute shortage of daily-use items. I saw entirely different situation compare to the normal designated Camps in Peshawar, Mardan and Swabi. Because of the non schedule military curfew, the IDPs are facing very harsh circumstances which we canâ€™t compare with the other IDPs camps. If the situation remains the same for few days I have no idea what will happened next.
As per statistic which I collected in Village Dargai. Total Number of IDPs
1195 families (these are registered with UNHCR)
12 IDPs camps in School and colleges where 311 families are living. Gul Muqam M.Raiz IDPs camp : 431 families (2535 persons) are living The rest of IDPs are living in Hujras or with their relatives
