Situation Report
Originally published


Summary: Due to the sudden onset of extremely cold weather, many Belarusians' livelihoods already hit hard by the crisis have come under extreme pressure. The severe winter has in particular increased vulnerability of the homeless. The Belarus Red Cross has undertaken to respond immediately by meeting their basic needs such as hot meals, warm clothing and blankets.
This operation is expected to be implemented over two months, and will therefore be completed by 31st March 2012; a Final Report will be made available three months after the end of the operation (by 30th June 2012).
