Bangladesh: Population movement - Revised Emergency appeal n° MDRBD018

This Revised Emergency Appeal is seeking 4,040,219 Swiss francs (increased from 3,265,766 Swiss francs) to enable the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to support the Bangladesh Red Crescent Society (BDRCS) to deliver assistance and support to 25,000 people over a period of 18 months (extended from nine months). The operation will focus on the following sectors: health; water sanitation and hygiene (WASH); food security, nutrition, livelihoods; shelter including non-food items; restoring family links (RFL); disaster risk reduction (DRR) and strengthening community resilience and National Society capacity building. Major changes include the reduction of food items, introduction of DRR and Community Resilience, integration of Gender specific and Protection needs, small cash grants for livelihood and supplementary feeding as well as strengthening social networks and partnership. The planned response reflects the updated and current situation and information available at this time of the evolving operation, adjusted with an increase of 19 per cent in budget and a nine-month extension due to tropical cyclone Mora (TC Mora) that made landfall in the area of operation on 30 May 2017 as well as updated information from recent detailed assessments and analysis.
