In January WFP succeeded to provide food assistance to 208,000 IDPs in the conflict area in Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA); the number increased to 256,000 beneficiaries in February 2009. Target in March will be 330,000 persons due to the increasing number of displaced people.

A total of nine humanitarian hubs have been established in NWFP and are fully functional to support the storage and distribution of food and non food items for the IDP operation.
