Lack of resources severely affecting Afghan refugees at Jalozai camp

PESHAWAR: Clashes between security forces and extremists have forced people to vacate FATA. At least 20,000 affectees have migrated to the Jalozai camp in Nowshehra.
The camp has been home to migrant Afghanis for nearly 30 years and more than 5,000 affectees have applied for registration making it the largest refugee camp in NWFP.
Additional affectees pour in every day increasing the pressure on the camp's resources causing a lot of problems for the migrants as even the basic amenities are unavailable to some.
The government has also shifted affectees from Swat to this camp, which has further increased pressure on its resources.
An example of that can be ascertained from an incident in which at least two chidren perished when a tent caught fire. The refugees demonstrated for two days on G. T. Road protesting the unfortunate incident.
However, the administration and management officials have assured the dwellers of basic amenities despite the severe lack of resources.
