Story of a family living in an IDP camp who benefited from ICRC assistance

I am Ihsan Ullah from Bajaur Agency. When the fighting started in Bajaur Agency, we left behind our homes and businesses. We walked miles through the mountainous areas, because the roads were closed, and finally reached Jahangira. I rented a home in Jehangira, but after five months, it became impossible for me to cover the expenses. ICRC opened a camp in Shah Mansoor where I registered my family. There, the ICRC officials provided us with tents, food, water, medical facilities and other essential items. We are grateful to the ICRC for their help during such a difficult time. They should continue this work.
