Helping Children in Crisis

Pakistan is going through testing times. In early 2009, the military operation against Talibans started in Malakand division, due to which nearly 2.5 million people were displaced. Funkor Childart Center, organised special activities with nearly 1500 displaced children, using art and book reading to exorcise their fears. In collaboration with Civil Society Islamabad we distributed relief goods to nearly 3000 displaced families in Mardan, Swabi, Dargai and Islamabad. We also provided relief goods to the minorities, Sikhs, Christians and Hindus who had to flee the area because Talibans had imposed a tax, 'Jizia' on non-Muslims.
Funkor plans to organise more activities for the displaced children from Waziristan, where the military operation has started recently.
