Joint need assessment of IDPs in Khaskunar district of Kunar


Direct Observation

Key findings: 

The affected families were displaced from Shalai village (which is close to the Afghanistan-Pakistan border) due to cross border shieling, the people of Shalai village claims that the government of Pakistan were firing rockets on the village continuously, people feel the fear of losing their lives and compelled to leave the area and move down into a secure place, so they have settled themselves in Shalai daag area which is located closely to the district center of Khas Kunar district, as they have just saved their lives and left everything including home appliances at their place of origin, currently they are suffering from the lack of food, NFI, shelter, and WASH facilities.
As we were informed about the case by ECHO who were already informed by DACAAR, we coordinated it with DACAAR-Jalalabad and OCHA-Jalalabad, in order to have a clear picture of the case and the situation.Due to some confusions it was decided to reassess these families by a joint assessment team composed of NRC, DoRR, DACAAR, UNHCR partner, WFP partner, and local authorities. The assessment last for 5 days, (27 Mar – 02 April) and identified 189 families which makes a total of 1136 individuals in need of emergency assistance.
