Geneva, October 2015
**1. Brief description of the emergency and impact **
Au matin du 26 septembre dernier, le quartier de PK5 s’est embrasé après le meurtre d’un jeune taxi moto musulman, donnant lieu à des tensions régulières. Depuis, les combats sont journaliers et les ressentiments communautaires laissent place à des revendications politiques, avec des discours qui accusent l’ensemble de la communauté internationale.
1 Attaques délibérées contre les organisations humanitaires et les structures étatiques avec pour conséquence une rupture de l’accès aux services de base, notamment de santé.
On the morning of September 26, violence suddenly returned to the PK5 neighborhood after the murder of a young Muslim motorcycle taxi driver. Despite regular tensions in this neighborhood, the MINUSCA Peacekeeping Mission intervened very late, and with resentments still present in the population, the situation took an extremely violent turn. The peacekeeping force’s lack of anticipation and quick reaction contributed to the deterioration of the security situation, with outbursts of punitive and opportunistic violence.
Appeal Target: US$ 840,396.
Geneva, 05 October 2015 Dear Colleagues,
Relatively late pledges to the Appeal delayed the implementation for one of the ACT member, EELCO.
Additionally, in the meantime newly identified gaps in EELCO’s areas of intervention have motivated some change of activities. As a result, EELCO will revise its part of the Appeal, and request for an extension, while FCA, NCA and ECC remains unchanged (and their implementation period is now over).
This first revsision only affects EELCO part of the Appeal.
At the launch of its secretariat presence in Amman, Jordan, on 31 August, ACT Alliance called for the protection and support of refugees in accordance with the United Nations Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, Refugee Protocol, regional laws and standards, United Nations resolutions and international human rights and humanitarian law.
ACT Alliance members are working with refugees and internally displaced people on all continents.
