This is Kharestan IDP settlement some 6km out of Qala-e-naw city. According to recent assessment by OCHA, 4,787hh are living in this settlement. IDPs from Muqur, and BalaMurghab districts have settled here and some have moved from Qala-e-naw surrounding villages. These people were saying that there is no more water in their villages and they had to move somewhere.
NRC with support from Sida distributed 200 tents in this settlement. During an early visit from the settlement we found most of the tents occupied. Photo: NRC/Enayatullah Azad
