Internally Displaced People in Pakistan

Updates about IDPs from FATA, Swat, Dir and Buner


This website is a makeshift, and collaborative effort that is a response to what many experts and interested on-lookers see as the largest humanitarian crisis in Pakistani history. As a result of conflict in northwestern Pakistan, hundreds of thousands of innocent citizens are leaving their homes to escape the violence. 

The primary purpose is to track the estimates and the real-time data that is cited by international organizations, such as the UN, as well as the government agencies (NDMA and others) to determine and communicate the scale of the problem. 

Some additional information in terms of the latest news items, the status of the IDP camps, and the kinds of organizations that you may want to support is also provided here. 

We take no legal responsibility for any information here, or how it is used. However, we take very seriously, this work. We hope it is useful, and that if you have additional information, or ideas, that you’ll come forward to share them. 

Many thanks. 


Pakistan IDPs Team

    Hi Mosharraf Sahib,

    I think the following info might be of interest for you and you may like to put it up at an appropriate page. It is not a confirmed piece of info (as yet); I got from someone via facebook while I was looking for volunteers for Awab Alvi’s campaign:

    “you need more volunteers or any other help, contact Mr. Bakhtiyar on 0300-8996820. He might be able to help as he has got 3 medical camps in Swabi, Dargai etc. I have no way to confirm this info btw; a cause member told me so.”

    Feel free to delete this message from here. Can´t find your email address. Regards,
