Bannu – Health & Hygiene Kits Distribution to NWA IDPs, July 2014
Pending registration of Aizan Development Foundation, the NGO, the Aizan team initiated a collective effort to provide humanitarian relief to North Waziristan Agency Displaced families in July 2014.
Two hundred North Waziristan Agency (NWA) IDP families were gifted/presented with Hygiene Kits by Aizan Development in District Bannu. The main purpose of this activity was to facilitate and assist the displaced families with their health and hygiene issues in hour of need. Most of the IDP families residing in Bannu Township were living with their relatives and or in rented accommodation.
The hygiene kits distributed by the Aizan team consisted of Aqua Tabs to ensure safe and clean drinking water, Toothbrushes, Toothpaste, Washing Powder, Body Soap, Towels and Mosquito Repellent to protect families from Dengue and Malaria. To add an element of happiness during this situation of stress, Mehndi (Henna) was also given to women and girls. The IDP families appreciated Aizan Development’s and its Donors kindness and support. The displaced people highlighted health issues including allergy, infections and other skin related diseases. They emphasized for the need of more health initiatives to protect their children and families from serious illnesses. A particular concern raised on this visit was heat rash.
Aizan Development is thankful to its kind and generous donors for their support and help for the displaced families, just in time for Eid-Ul-Fitr. We and the displaced families, highly appreciate this collective effort. Without Donors contribution this would not have been possible. Thank you all for your kindness and consideration.
