This Emergency Appeal seeks 3,258,043 Swiss francs in cash to be channelled multilaterally through the IFRC Secretariat which will support on a preliminary basis Red Cross Society of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYR of Macedonia) to respond to the needs of 110,000 people over the coming seven months.

The RCS’s operation will focus on food and cash vouchers distributions; health care particularly first aid and hygiene promotion; restoring family links (RFL) in coordination with the ICRC; and contingency stocks for a potential deterioration of the humanitarian situation.
A total of USD 30.5 million is requested from June 2015 to December 2016 for the initial response plan for the refugee crisis in Europe (RCE), in the affected countries of Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cyprus, France (Calais), Greece, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Serbia, Spain, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, and Turkey.

States bordering the Mediterranean Sea are currently faced with significant movements of migrants and refugees seeking to enter Europe. Many have become victims of smuggling and trafficking and often been subjected to rights abuse en route. Thousands have lost their lives at sea. In the first five months of 2015 alone, some 1,850 people have drowned in the Mediterranean in their attempt to reach European shores. Thousands more in North African countries and further east, including Turkey, are poised to take the same risks.
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.
