Displaced woman erecting her makeshift tent at Sanjetak IDP settlement.
Sanjetak IDP settlement located on the ring-road to Faryab and Balkh. Many people were moved from Qala-e-naw surrounding areas like Kharestan. Families moved in different dates but many were displaced in their villages before coming here. Some of the families were moved from Shamali Darya to here. Families interviewed said that they have come here due to gov’t encouragement.
Woman we spoke in this settlement said she had lost her there-months daughter due to cold and respiratory causes and allegedly many babies had died due to cold. Families were asking for shelter, WASH and food assistance. The families here are provided with bag of flour and water trucking. Photo: NRC/Enayatullah Azad
