Highlights

  • UNICEF and partners are reaching more than 2,930 children affected by flooding with hygiene promotion, clean water and appropriate temporary sanitation. UNICEF has also supported the initial set-up of temporary learning spaces and the deployment of social workers to provide psycho-social support to affected women, men and children.

  • UNICEF response is 12% funded and unmet needs of flood affected children include psychosocial support, safe learning spaces and good nutrition.

  • There has been no new funding after the initial government appeal. The response therefore still remains only 33% (total budget US$4.5mill) funded across all sectors. Decongestion of the temporary relocation site is still largely constrained by the slow pace of pegging new sites on the proposed settlement site.
