Kyrgyzstan: Floods and mudflows DREF operation n° MDRKG008 - Final report

Summary: Series of mudflows occurred on the territory of Naryn, Osh, Jalalabad and Batken regions including remote districts throughout April 2013. Food stocks, home properties, livelihoods and infrastructure have been heavily damaged. According to the Kyrgyz Red Crescent assessment a total of more than 2,310 households were affected in Osh, Batken, Jalalabad and Naryn.

As a result of the rapid assessment, the Kyrgyz Red Crescent has identified 1,001 families (5,005 people) in need for urgent assistance with basic food, hygiene and non-food items. As immediate response the National Society has distributed blankets, hygiene kits, and kitchen sets from its prepositioned emergency stock warehouses in Osh and Batken to a total of 161 families. After DREF was received, additional 840 families were supported with the humanitarian items. Finally, the total distribution of relief items covered 1,001 families of Batken, Osh and Jalalabad regions.

100% of the operation costs are already replenished through the contributions of the Government of the Netherlands through the Netherlands Red Cross (CHF 49,960), European Commission Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO) (CHF 45,965) and Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) though the Canadian Red Cross (CHF 18,457).

After finalizing operations there is still an outstanding working advance on this operation that needs to be reported. As this does not affect the operation and is purely a financial matter, IFRC is submitting an interim financial report to the DREF Final narrative report. Once the working advance report is booked, final financial report will be submitted and the narrative will be amended accordingly. After finalizing operations there is an expected balance of CHF 8,500 which will need to be reimbursed to the DREF funds.
