Very little aid had reached this area and the Watan Foundation was the only NGO providing organized aid to the Internally Displaced Peoples (IDPs) here. They had managed to set up a registration and a small medical camp.
Food was being provided twice a day. However this was becoming more and more difficult as food and ration vans were starting to get mobbed.
YPO Pakistan (a chapter of the international Young Presidents Organization) came in to work with Wattan to provide essentail materials needed to create a camp to house 1,000 people.
The first day was spent assessing the situation on the ground and scouting for an appropriate location for the camp. This turned out to be a bigger challenge than they had anticipated.
It took until nightfall to secure land near the Shikarpur bypass. The supplies arrived at 2.30 AM that night and the next day was spent setting up the camp.
