This revised Emergency Appeal has an increased timeframe, number of people to be reached and budget. The number of services to be provided is increased from 120,000 to 170,000. The budget has been increased to 6,591,863 Swiss francs from 4.89 million Swiss francs. The budget is distributed in the same manner as in the original Emergency Appeal with additional funding to permit new activities that respond to the current analysis of humanitarian needs in the country, as well as support for the continuation of work by the operational team. This revised plan of action supports continued activities in the areas of focus of shelter; livelihoods and basic needs; health; water, sanitation and hygiene promotion; protection, gender and inclusion; migration; and disaster risk reduction.

Emphasis will continue in primary health care including first aid services especially in the points along the paths for the caminantes (migrants on foot). The increase in the timeframe also allows for additional cash transfer initiatives, further protection activities (training parents and teachers to build protective environments), as well as distribution of hygiene and first aid kits for community shelters, dignity kits for adolescents, training and community-level dissemination to promote integration and social cohesion, and improved distribution of nutritional supplements.
