Principales constatations: 

These families were living in Pakistan as undocumented/unregistered refugees and passed many years living there. Due to recent clashes, the government of Pakistan decided to expel all Afghan families. They were finally forced and made to pass the border. When they arrived to Afghanistan, they settled in different locations and since they were forced evictees they left all assets and livelihood in Pakistan and couldn’t bring many things with them. As they were in emergency situation; hence a need assessment conducted and observed that these families are living in extreme bad condition and are in needs of emergency assistance.

Looking to the situation, HRT in East Region decided to assist these families with emergency assistance they notified humanitarian organization on 21-Nov-2016 to start surveying these families. Based on the decision, NRC started assessments in different districts of Kunar, Laghman and Nangarhar in order to identify the undocumented returnee families who are in need of emergency assistance. After assisting hundreds of families in other areas, on 12 – 15, March- 2017, NRC conducted assessment with DoRR in Behsood district of Nangarhar province where we found 72 undocumented unassisted returnee families which make a total of 474 individuals and average household size of 6.58 person.
