Pakistan Video: Over Two Million People Displaced by Fighting

Pakistan's military stepped up its Swat offensive against the Taliban and their al-Qaeda allies in May.The fighting started in the tribal areas located between the country's North West Frontier Province (NWFP) and the border with Afghanistan. It has now enveloped the area to the east and south . Over two million people have fled their homes as a result of the current crisis in Pakistan. A major humanitarian crisis is now developing. Relief Agency Concern is endeavouring to tackle the problem. However it needs more private donations as it is financially stretched in Pakistan.

Absolutely beautiful country in that region. Beautiful people too.

It makes me want to go in singing, dancing and telling stories to those women and children. Anything to bring even one smile.

As the fighting in Pakistan gets worse so will the crisis. Just like the native peoples in South America and other countries. They are not paret of the problem, they are just in the way.
