posted on 13/09/2010: 688 views



The Red Crescent Authority (RCA) team stationed in Pakistan has distributed new Eid Al-Fitr clothes to 700 persons living in camps on the outskirts of Peshawar, Pakistan after they had been displaced by the floods.

The team also continues to provide the displaced with psychological support to mitigate the trauma of the country's worst-ever natural disaster in terms of the amount of damage and the number of people affected.

In Babi village, Peshawar, make-shift camps at 3 schools accommodate now 3121 displaced persons whose homes were destroyed by the surging floods, according to Mohammed Nadim who is in charge of relief operations in the village.

"These displaced people will soon face an unknown future when they have to leave the schools at the start of the new academic year. They have nowhere to go," he added.

Local health authorities reported an outbreak of skin diseases, intestinal infections and diarrhoea among residents of the affected areas in Pakistan.

More than six million Pakistani people were forced from their homes by the disaster which also has killed about 1,600 people, inflicted billions of dollars of damage to homes, infrastructure and the vital agriculture sector. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
