UNICEF Appeals for Funding to Urgently Assist Displaced Children and Women in Northwest Pakistan
Date:5/27/2009

NEW YORK and ISLAMABAD, Pakistan, May 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- UNICEF has appealed for an additional $41.4 million to provide urgent assistance to people displaced by fighting in northwest Pakistan. Over half of the displaced are children. UNICEF Pakistan has now almost exhausted its contingency stocks of supplies and funding.

Humanitarian efforts have been strained by the very rapid increase in the number of people fleeing fighting that has taken place in the Malakand division of the North-West Frontier Province (NWFP) since early May 2009.

"We expect that the situation for the internally displaced will only get worse in the coming weeks," said Caryl Stern, President and CEO, U.S. Fund for UNICEF. "There is an opportunity to prevent the unnecessary suffering and death of innocent children, if funds are raised. Twenty-five thousand children under the age of five die every day from preventable causes. As we work to bring that number to zero, financial support will help us to insure that the lives of children are no longer placed in jeopardy as a result of adult missteps and politics."

The massive movement of people has increased to some 2.5 million since early May 2009. They have poured into camps and host communities, arriving with few possessions and in urgent need of safe water, clothing, food, shelter, health care, and protection. These displaced have added to half a million people who had been previously displaced by conflict in Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) in the second part of 2008.

More displacement of populations is expected in the days ahead as military operations expand to new areas.

Difficulties of access combined with shortages of essential humanitarian supplies and funding are hindering efforts to provide children and women who are internally displaced with life-saving support.
