HEAT assessment of Conflict IDPs Balkh province (08 June 2017)

On the 17th of May humanitarian NGOs were informed by UNOCHA and DoRR regarding displacement of 850 households from Baghlan, Faryab, Samangan, Saripul, Ghazni, Kunduz and Kishindi district of Balkh province to Nahr-e Sahi, Dehdadi, Chimtal and Mazar-e Sharif multiple locations. On the screening committee meeting two joint assessment teams composed of PIN, DCAAR, Care-Int, WFP, DoRR, NPO, NRC, WAW & SCI were recommended to assess the mentioned families. Following the rapid joint assessment from 18-24 May out of 159-families, 41 families were selected and responded by NRC, DACAAR and Care-Int. The assessment continued by other partners. Following the first response from 25-May till 08-Jun, out of 467 families, 116 families were recognized as real conflict induced displacements and are eligible for humanitarian supports. During the house to house interviews, IDPs were claimed the main reason behind their displacement were insecurity and extortion, which affected them to flee their origin places. The affected families are in urgent needs of humanitarian supports as they lifted behind their all belongings such as household’s commodities and food stocks. Since the displacement the families are accommodated with host, rented houses and some of them living in shift made tents with very poor facilities. Therefore, the displaced families are in an improper situation suffering from lack of proper NFIs as well as food items.
