This revised Emergency Appeal seeks 28,236,416 Swiss francs (increased from 6,852,515) to enable the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to support the Haiti Red Cross Society (HRCS) in assisting 147,500 people for 18 months. It includes the coordinated interventions of a number of components of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, including the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and Partner National Societies active in Haiti. The expanded operation will focus on the following sectors: health; water, sanitation and hygiene promotion; shelter (including household non- food items); livelihoods, food security; disaster risk reduction and restoring family links. It also reflects a substantial increase in the target population, timeframe for implementation, number of activities and of volunteers, and an enlarged geographic scope. The current funding gap is 20,616,924 Swiss francs. The planned response reflects the current situation and information available at this time of the evolving operation, and will be adjusted based on further developments and more detailed assessments. The complete Emergency Plan of Action (EPoA) will be made available shortly
