Food Assistance to Flood Affected People

EMOP 200177

 

The July 2010 catastrophic floods not only damaged roads, bridges, public infrastructure but also damaged houses, agriculture land, livestock and other privately owned different assets. The disconnection of Karakoram High Way has worsened the situation as food supply line was damaged. Keeping in view the non-availability of food items DPAP with support of UNWFP distributed food items among the flood affected families of Diamer district to meet the nutrition requirements for period of 04 months. Following table shows the figures of the emergency relief operation in Diamer by DPAP in collaboration with UNWFP.
