KARACHI - To date, more than 83,000 internally placed persons (IDPs) from Buner, Dir, and Swat have been registered from the new influx - some 5,000 staying in three new camps, and more than 78,000 who are renting houses or staying with host families, the Refugee Agency (UNHCR) said, without specifying where these all-fated people were staying. The number of internally placed persons (IDPs)is increasing to the dangerous extent, which might be resulted in tremendous outburst. The impact of displacement was more acute on children, who suffered from diseases and harsh weather due to lack of health and security measures in the camps. Separation of displaced children from their families was also reported. These ill-fated children have to work hard in search of food and firewood to keep warm, even sometimes they are bound to beg for survival. The UNHCR has further reported that small children finding no way to play their varied games in open air have had strong psychological impact off the on-going warfare. With the lack of school-certificates for IDPs children and other documents to get admission in schools they are even barred access to basic education at primary level. There were reports of displaced children suffering from psychological disorders on account of their forced flight, severe bombardment and prolonged conflict and bloodshed. Many were reported to have fallen ill on account of cold weather up-North. According to initial screenings, by UNHCR there were apprehensions that the situation in other camps in NWFP districts - including those in Lower Dir, Mardan, Charsadda and Nowshera - might be worse than Kacha Garhi as those camps were transitional and lacked basic facilities. More than 4,62,000 are staying in rented accommodation or with host families. Another 93,000 are staying in 11 camps supported by UNHCR, other UN humanitarian agencies, NGOs and the Red Cross and Red Crescent, according to the UNHCR. Thousands of children are without schools to go to; many families live in inadequate accommodation; food shortages have been reported; and, according to Maulana Abdul Sattar Edhi, one of Pakistans best known philanthropic workers, there is an urgent need for action.
