It is pleasing to quote that the FATA Disaster Management Authority (FDMA) has managed to obtain 25,000 tents from the federal government for the return of internally displaced people of FATA. More importantly, FDMA is formally asking the ministry to arrange funds for more tents. They are not only to provide Rs 35,000 as cash aid for IDP’s, but FDMA is also trying its level best to give six months’ food rations and a set of non- food items to Fata civilians. Damages are much high because of the collapsed houses due to bad weather. Owing to the harsh weather problems the people need rapid shelter for their protection.
