RAHBAR with the support of UNICEF implemented the PCA “WASH Emergency IDPs Response in FATA (South Waziristan and Orakzai Agencies)”. Under the PCA, RAHBAR provided the basic WASH services and rehabilitation of water supply schemes with a view to prevent and reduce the incidence of water and sanitation related diseases among men, women and children in their places of origin. WASH interventions were aimed to provide safe drinking water, WASH NFIs in line with SPHERE guide lines and hygiene awareness to target populations in their areas of return.
