This revised Emergency Appeal seeks a total of 38.5 million Swiss francs (with a funding gap of approximately 17.1 million Swiss francs), increasing from 22 million Swiss francs, to enable the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to support the Indonesian Red Cross – Palang Merah Indonesia (PMI) – to deliver assistance and support to an estimated 160,000 people (40,000 households) for 30 months. The operation will focus on the following main areas of interventions: shelter; livelihoods and basic needs; health; water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); protection, gender and inclusion (PGI); migration and displacement; disaster risk reduction (DRR); and National Society and local actors (branch) capacity enhancement.
This revised Emergency Appeal also seeks funding for activities relating to shelter cluster coordination as well as those supported by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) on the following main areas of interventions: Restoring Family Links (RFL), management of the dead, and forensics. Details will be provided in the respective Emergency Plans of Action (EPoAs) for Lombok and Sulawesi following the ongoing early recovery assessments.
This revised Emergency Appeal takes into consideration the emerging needs in mid- to longer-term recovery, including mitigating emerging health and water and sanitation risks, physical rehabilitation and reconstruction of shelter and public buildings and services. This revision also aims to support community recovery in livelihoods while further increasing their resilience to withstand the impact of such future shocks, as well as strengthen the capacities of PMI and its branches to meet such needs. The revision also included the deployment of Emergency Response Units to support the response.
