Swat refugees strain humanitarian resources in Pakistan

Of the two million people who fled Pakistan’s Swat Valley in late April, only about a third have currently returned. More than a million of the refugees who have not returned home remain in the region of Mardan, overwhelming services there.

Aid workers from the humanitarian group Concern Worldwide recently visited the affected area and documented the very difficult conditions there.

Dominic MacSorley, the operating manager of Concern Worldwide U.S., joins Martin Savidge to discuss the state of affairs in Mardan and the surrounding areas.
