Bangladesh Floods Alert No.2
Please reference our Alert dated 15 July 1997 reporting on the floods and our immediate response of US$ 25,000 to Social Health and Educational (SHED) Board's request for assistance. Thereafter the ACT Coordinating Office also sent US$ 15,000 to Bangladesh Auxiliary Services for Social Development (BASSA) from the Rapid Response Fund (RRF).
ACT members were able to meet only partial relief needs with the amounts received as RRF and have since requested further assistance to meet the remaining needs of the flood affected people.
The ACT Coordinating Office will shortly issue an Appeal for aproximately US$ 160,000 on behalf of the three ACT members SHED, BASSA and KOINONIA to enable them to complete the programmes they initiated with the RRF.
