The volatile situation in the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) in Pakistan continues to bring increasing number of displacements each day.
So far 27 camps in six different districts have been set up to give temporary shelter for people fleeing the violence. Still there are many people remaining in the conflict areas, trapped due to insecurity and strict curfews, preventing people from leaving their homes and giving them limited access to food, water and the possibility to seek emergency medical care.
The IDPs are now living in a city of plastic and canvas, one of them is Jalozai Camp Peshawar, which is accommodating around a million of refugees and there are efforts for enlarging the camp city as the coming influx seems to be never ending. Despite of various psychological and physical disorders, people are also suffering from improper food supply.
CNN reports that refugees of this camp are forced to eat the provided food as they are unable to buy food for them selves. They make bread with flour handed out by the United Nations, but they say it’s not enough. “It’s very difficult, there’s lots of jostling,” says Mehboob Shah, a man at the camp. When there is food, he says, “it’s very poor quality — even the cows won’t eat it.”
The complains are coming frequently and international media is there to make a news every minute.
