Brief detail of recent military operation, incidents and its causes.
There are many causes and factors of recent military operation, in which unemployment, illiteracy, injustice, day by day increase in poverty, misunderstanding between masses, misuse of helpless people, religious and political factors, lack of in time decision making by the leadership, false customs and traditions, corruption, interruption and interests of international powers and especially Afghanistan war for the last 30 years are the main causes of terrorism and militancy and then the recent military operation.
Due to these circumstances certain militant groups formed and organized, they got weapons, money, logistics and trainings, due to which the situation of law and order created and caused the recent military operation in Malakand Division. Resultantly thousands of people died and injoured while more than 2.7 million people were compelled to leave their homelands and become internally displaced persons.
FLOW OF IDPS IN MARDAN, SAWABI AND OTHER DISTRICTS OF NWFP. The IDPs of Swat and Dir districts migrated through Takht Bhai district Mardan while the IDPs of Buner district came through Rustam District Mardan and Swabi city . The majority IDPs were hosted by the people of Mardan districts while the government established camps in Jalala, Mazdoor Abad, Shekh Shehzad and Shekh Yaseen of district Mardan and Yar Husain, Shah Mansoor 1 and Shah Mansoor 2 of district Swabi and Jalozai and Benazir camps established in Noshehra district.
BRIEF DETAIL ABOUT FOOD AND SHELTER OF IDPS
The views of IDPs migration were very hard, because the IDPs compelled to migrate in very helpless state and suddenly. These IDPs not only left their beautiful land but their died and injured relatives also. Majority of IDPs had come out only in one wearing dress. Especially the pregnant women, children and elders were in very worst condition.
Thousand of people were laid in the streets and road sides in district Mardan without any food and shelter. When no one came for the help of these IDPs then the people of district Mardan opened their hujras, houses, shops and mosques for the accommodation of these IDPs and solved their food and shelter problem. On the other hand government solved the problems of IDPs in camps. The IDPs have been provided food, clothes, quilts, water, health services and kitchen pots.

CELEBRATION OF BREAST FEEDING WEEK
Seminar in Jalala IDPs camp and BHU Ikram Pur
Tehsil Takhat Bhai in District Mardan
Date: 5th August 2009
Venue: 1. Jalala IDPs camp, Takht Bhai, Mardan
2. BHU Bezo Kharki Ikram Pur, Malakand Agency
By: Salik Development Foundation
Participants: 130 Mothers of concerned communities, teachers and LHWs.
The first week of August, 2009 was being celebrated as breast feeding week in all over the world. In this connection Salik Foundation celebrated breast feeding week and conducted two seminars, one in IDPs camp Jalala and one in CMAM project area BHU Ikram Pur & Palai at Malakand Agency.
The seminar started with the recitation from the Holly Quran By volunteer, all female staff and participants introduced their selves.
Mr.Amir Habib (Nutritionist) and community mobilizer, Nizakat community mobilizer, Ms Rukhsana Parveen female doctor and Nahid Naz Nutrition Assistant gave the following details about the importance of breast feeding and its celebration.
They highlighted the benefits and importance of breastfeeding according to the following detail.
Breastfeeding improves children’s intellectual, mental and physical health prospects in childhood and throughout life. It promotes bonding between mother and baby – a foundation for lifetime emotional well-being; it reduces risks of a wide range of infectious diseases, asthma, overweight, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, and some malignancies. For mothers it promotes recovery from childbirth, and reduces some cancer risks and later osteoporosis. A more honest and valid way of expressing all this is to say that formula feeding of infants, without breastfeeding, raises the risks of all these disorders. The WHO and UNICEF Declaration on the Protection, Promotion and Support of Breastfeeding. They urged that “for optimal maternal and child health and nutrition, all women should be enabled to practise exclusive breastfeeding and all infants should be fed exclusively on breast milk from birth to 4-6 months of age. Thereafter, children should continue to be breastfed, while receiving appropriate and adequate complementary foods, for up to two years of age or beyond. This child-feeding ideal is to be achieved by creating an appropriate environment of awareness and support so that women can breastfeed in this manner.

Though the IDPs were very happy to return but they have not receive their ATM cards, aids and other things so they were very uneasy.

But some IDP families accommodated in Jalala camp from other part of district mardan and other camps. Total families in Jalala camp are 824.

Some people showed to the participants that they are trained and now they are able to rebuild their homes and shops with their own hands while some people in the play showed that they did not get such trainings and they are not able to work for themselves and now they are requesting other trained people to work for them.
IDPS VIEWS ABOUT THE PROJECT:
As all IDPs had come in a very helpless conditions and they were in deep trouble in early days but they had the love and devotion of local host people due to the services and hospitality.
The IDP support program of PPAF was unique which effect positively on the minds of IDP people. Due to this program they not only received money, certificate and tools but they found a base for the future development and prosperity also. All the young trainees promised that they will work hard for the rebuilding of their homeland and Pakistan. And they will improve their skills after return. Some IDPs made relationships and get benefits from each other ideas, facilities and experiences. The spirit of self help and scarifies developed which will be very useful and helpful in future rehabilitation and reconstruction of their areas.
CONSTRAINTS AND PROBLEMS OF THE PROJECT:
a. The implementation of IDPs support program was immediate and in short time. The site selection for camp, space occupation, arrangements, set up for training, staff hiring and selection of trainers was very challenging.
b. The big problem was that to arrange human and financial resources alongwith record keeping and to complete the process too. Some time it was very difficult to control our natural and human emotions to see the helplessness of IDPs to work for them without project criteria but due to commitment and principles we couldn’t do it and control ourselves.
c. According to the program we had to work only for camp IDPs and training but we were requested again and again by the out side camps IDPs which were in millions. But according the agreement we were compelled to work only for camp IDPs and training.
d. IDPs women did not like to unhide themselves for training purposes in camp but our social mobilizers mobilized them and their males too that do get benefit of this program.
e. We had the fear of suicide blast or any other bomb blast may occur at any time. That’s why some people ignored our celebrations and events. The space between Pak Army and people has been increased. Salik Foundation has decreased such space and restored the confidence of the IDPs as well as the local people. For this purpose Salik Foundation invited the officers of Pak Army and government officials in its celebrations and events. Even the officers and Jawans of Pak Army actively participated in the walk conducted by Salik Foundation for awareness raising. This was the first time that officers of government and Pak Army took part in a public activity. Due to this activity the loose confidence resorted of the IDPs and people and they liked this activity very much.
EFFECTS OF IDPS MIGRATION ON LOCAL POPULATION.
• Mardan and Sawabi districts especially Tehsil Takht Bhai effected very much after the migration of IDPs. The mobility of the area badly effected and it was hard to get to offices and other parts of the big cities due to huge traffic all time on the roads.
• Due to hurdles in mobility the official work, government and personnel matters increased.
• The schools have been closed in May, 2009 due to which the education of students disturbed.
• The repair and maintenance work in schools is done in the summer vacations every year, in these summer vacations (June, July, August) the repair and maintenance work did not completed.
• Due to the accommodation of IDPs in schools, furniture, fans, electrification, bathrooms, class rooms and other things of the schools and colleges effected and become out of order, which is useless for students and then they will come to school after vacations they will face problems.
• The link roads are effected and are repairable.
• The water sources especially communal hand pumps become out of order.
• Increase in inflation due to gape in demand and supply.
• Teaching staff involvement in management of IDPs.
RECOMMENDATIONS & SUGGESTIONS:
a. This program may be kept ongoing till the last IDP return.
b. The set up of Jalala IDPs camp may be kept operational for the local population after the return of the IDPs. Because district Mardan and especially Tehsil Takt Bhai is the most effected areas. The financial status of the people who have hosted the IDPs, become lower and some extra burden of food, electricity etc, so the local people deserve for developmental and welfare schemes like CPI, health, environment and employment after the return of IDPs. While the current set up in Jalala IDPs camp may be used.
c. Salik Foundation is ready and welling in Swat, Buner, Dir and bajure for relief, reconstruction and rehabilitation activities/projects. The offices of Salik Foundation in the said areas are as under.
