In this project CARE International in Pakistan responding to the IDPs needs in 4 UCs of Bannu and DIK districts. According to CARE initial assessment the four district were hosting highest number of IDPs and requires food and livelihood support, WASH, health services for women. IDPs in these districts were displaced due to insecurity in SWA between 2007-2010 and during 2010 in NWA. Livelihoods were lost as people were displaced from their homes, and IDPs are nearly all now living either with relatives or in temporary, rented houses.The assessment found that IDPs are employing negative coping strategies to deal with the gap between income and expenditure. Particularly, vulnerable IDPs reduced food quantity and diversity and are also affected by dysfunctional water supply systems at community, households and government sites. More generally, the inadequate number of latrines affects whole communities, whether IDPs or hosts.
Through this project CARE is supporting 127,590 individuals in the two districts through cash transfer program. CARE transfer programmes (cash for work and conditional cash grant), target the poorest and highly vulnerable women and men, who are food insecure and have already adopted negative coping strategies.
