- A Revised Emergency Appeal was launched on 13 November 2009 for CHF 3,635,713 (USD 3.58 million or EUR 2.4 million) to support the Pakistan Red Crescent (PRCS) in assisting 42,000 people (6,000 families) until March 2010.
- The emergency appeal budget was revised down to CHF 7,974,802 on 6 July 2009 to assist 91,000 displaced people (13,000 families).
- Emergency Appeal was launched on 4 June 2009 for CHF 23.9 million for seven months to assist 140,000 people (20,000 families).
The objectives of this emergency appeal were largely achieved within the given timeframe. Following the revision of the plan of action in November 2009, the operation carried out the planned activities in the target districts of Hzara division and Attock, providing non-food items, health, water and sanitation, and psychosocial support services to the beneficiaries. Over the reporting period, a total of 13,000 families were reached with nonfood item distribution, while over 20,000 people received curative health care services. In the lifespan of the operation, health education sessions were conducted and psychosocial support was provided. The water and sanitation teams rehabilitated a number of water supply schemes, latrines and washrooms, while hygiene promotion teams conducted regular participatory hygiene and sanitation transformation (PHAST) sessions. The operation also provided shelter packages to 3,000 families.
Due to the deteriorating security situation in the target areas, the non-food item and shelter package distributions were initially delayed. In addition, replenishment of shelter materials was delayed when the incountry supplies did not meet the set standards/qualifications and the decision was made to initiate an international procurement process. However, by the end of the operation, these issues were all addressed and all objectives were met. As there is CHF 336 overspent under this operation, the final report for this operation will only be issued in November 2010.
