Emergency Response In times of natural disasters and mayhem, CAMP has been providing emergency relief and rehabilitation services across Pakistan. In the most recent floods that hit Pakistan in 2022, CAMP provided relief services through food and non-food distribution, and primary healthcare through mobile clinics in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. After the floods in 2010, CAMP implemented more than ten emergency relief and rehabilitation projects including on education (school in a box), health, livelihood, clean drinking water, rehabilitation of houses and community infrastructure. During the largest IDP crisis in the country, CAMP provided health care services through static and mobile clinics in Peshawar and Nowshera districts. From 2009 to 2015, CAMP was one of the leading primary health care service providers at Jalozai camp, in Nowshera district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. In the immediate aftermath of the October 2005 earthquake that ravaged Northern Pakistan and Kashmir, CAMP provided emergency services and during rehabilitation phase also set a Disability Centre and a village for the earthquake affected in Mansehra

Sustainable Development CAMP has implemented a wide range of projects on education, primary health, and community development, aiming towards poverty alleviation and sustainable development. Projects have focused on building and rehabilitating schools in the former FATA, providing primary education and adult literacy particularly for women, and clean water supply and sanitation. Moreover, we build the capacities of communities and local community groups in disaster resilience. CAMP conducts baseline surveys and develops village plans in consultation with local communities. Ongoing projects include a building resilience for disaster in flood-prone villages of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province

Promoting Human Rights Promoting human rights and liberties is one of CAMP’s core programming areas, and a major cross-cutting theme in all our work. Our human rights work involves empowering communities to claim their fundamental rights, guiding them to advocate for these rights, and creating dialogue between communities and key stakeholders for realization of these rights. Through our programmes we speak out for some of the most vulnerable groups including people with disabilities and raise our voices against issues such as human trafficking (especially women and children), and the right to basic services such as education and health
