This Emergency Appeal seeks 2,710,576 Swiss francs in cash to be channelled multilaterally through the IFRC Secretariat which will support the Italian Red Cross Society to assist an estimated 85,000 people, with a focus on emergency health, restoring family links (RFL), psychosocial support (PSS), national society institutional preparedness and capacity development. This appeal reflects the situation as it stands now. It may be updated and adjusted based on new developments and more detailed assessments.

IOM’s updated Humanitarian Compendium is now available in a new online platform: http://humanitariancompendium.iom.int/. The Humanitarian Compendium charts the humanitarian needs and strategic priorities of IOM in more than 30 countries for 2014, as coordinated at the inter-agency level, and reflected in Inter-Agency Response Plans and IOM Appeals. The Humanitarian Compendium will be updated on a rolling basis to reflect changes in requirements and funding received.
The Regional Coordination and Preparedness Emergency Appeal is launched by the IFRC to supplement and to support the current country-level Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) Emergency Appeals and preparedness operations supported by the Disaster Relief Emergency Fund (DREF). The aim of this appeal is to strengthen and scale up operations support, coordination, communication, capacity building and preparedness for at risk countries in the region and to prepare for the potential spread of Ebola outbreak to other countries in Africa and beyond.
The Humanitarian Compendium provides a comprehensive overview of IOM humanitarian projects for 2014 in coordination with other humanitarian partners and agencies.
2014 Appeal Story
One appeal to help nearly 60 million children
Every year, UNICEF responds to the needs of children in more than 250 humanitarian situations around the world – delivering medicines, vaccines, safe drinking water and other life-saving assistance, as well as ensuring that children have a safe learning environment and are protected from harm, abuse and exploitation.
All children living in emergency situations need special assistance to reach their full potential and grow into healthy and productive adults.
59 millones de niños viven en situaciones de emergencia en 50 países
UNICEF necesita 2.200 millones de dólares para ayudar a estos niños y sus familias. Es su mayor llamamiento de emergencia de la historia y casi un 40% responde a las necesidades de Siria y la región
L'UNICEF demande 2,2 milliards de dollars É.-U. pour aider 59 millions d'enfants en situation d'urgence
Le plus important appel d’urgence jamais lancé. Près de 40 pour cent à destination de la Syrie et la région
Global Humanitarian Response for 2014
Around the world, tens of millions of people are affected by crises and need humanitarian aid. Governments and other national and local responders carry the major burden in helping their people in need. Inevitably, in the most intense and large-scale crises, their response leaves some gaps; and the multilateral humanitarian system is founded on the principle of helping to meet those urgent needs that exceed the capacity of those with primary responsibility.
The East Asia and the Pacific subregion continues to face the challenges of mixed flows of migrants and asylum-seekers from Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
Critical underfunding highlighted in IOM’s Mid-Year Review of humanitarian activities

To date, IOM has received only USD 121.3 million in funding for its humanitarian projects in 22 countries, including Syria and its neighbouring countries.
Prefacio del Director Ejecutivo
Acción Humanitaria para la Infancia 2013
A primera vista, Fatima aparentaba tener unos 4 o 5 meses. Pero, en realidad, acababa de cumplir su primer año de vida. Estaba entre los 126.000 niños con desnutrición aguda grave tratados en uno de los 425 centros nutricionales establecidos por el Ministerio de Salud de Chad en 2012 como parte de la expansión de la atención en todo el Sahel. Se llegó a cientos de miles de niños con la atención necesaria para salvar sus vidas. Tristemente, no se pudo llegar a otros muchos.
