UNICEF and partners promote hygiene in schools amidst conflict and floods

Water levels along the Swat River have returned to normal, but evidence of the devastation from recent floods is everywhere. Bridges, roads, schools, health facilities, water supply and sanitation systems in Swat Valley – which were already suffering from the effects of military conflict over the last two years – are severely affected.

In flooded areas of north-western Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, the emergency has grown increasingly complex. Due to the pre-existing conflict in the province’s Malakand division, women and children – especially girls – were already denied access to basic health and education services.

Then the flood crisis caused a breakdown of communication networks and infrastructure, making this vulnerable group harder to reach with life-saving interventions.
