Appeal for helping women and children IDPs of North Waziristan (FATA), Pakistan

Dear All,

I am writing to you during another humanitarian crisis in our region. Hundreds of thousands of families from Waziristan region have been forced to leave their homes and migrate to other parts of Pakistan and some families towards Afghanistan.

Majority of these IDPs comprise of innocent women, children and old age persons, who have nothing to do with the ongoing conflict yet they remain the worst suffers. Being a woman myself I have suffered and witnessed the miseries of other displaced women and children during the Swat-Malakand IDPs crisis.  

My experience tells me that instead of government authorities or international humanitarian organizations, local actors can better understand the socio-psychological and cultural environment of IDPs, especially women and children. 

As during the Swat – Malakand IDPs crisishas shown us that many of the IDPs include pregnant and lactating mothers with special needs, which are not properly addressed during provision of relief and assistance. There are several health issues of women, which are not shared by women IDPs in the camps. Children too need special psychosocial support in the IDPs camps.

Unfortunately, unlike the Swat-Malakand IDPs crisis, the Waziristan IDPs crisis is not attracting media attention in Pakistan. Sindh government has banned entry of IDPs to Sindh. The federal and provincial government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have not unveiled IDPs response plan so far.  Being a member of National Humanitarian Network (NHN) Khyber Pakhtunkhwa /FATA chapter, I am aware of some efforts by the humanitarian organizations to reach out to the IDPs but coordination between government authorities and humanitarian organizations is not adequate to meet these challenges.

Keeping all these aspects in view and aware of the special needs of women and children, I want to facilitate the provision of needed services to IDP women and children belonging to Waziristan.

I trust that all Pakistanis living abroad will respond to this crisis by extending all possible support to the IDPs of Waziristan.

Please feel free to contact me on possible ways of providing support.

Stay blessed,

Shad Begum
