It is sad news for Peshawar that in the past ten years, nearly 250 bomb blasts have rocked Peshawar and surrounding areas due to militancy. As a result, about 50,000 innocent lives are lost so far, thousands more left injured, maimed or traumatised.
The injured or maimed are taken good care of by the government hospitals offering free treatment but so far no organisation has looked into handling the trauma of the directly affected and their allied families throughout the province which may total 2 to 3 million persons.
ZKF plans to start survey of such caseload and oganise trauma handling programme. Government and donor organisations are invited to contact us for support of this drastically needed assistance.
