Summary: CHF 195,002 was allocated from the IFRC’s Disaster Relief Emergency Fund (DREF) on 5 December, 2010 to support the national society in delivering assistance to some 4,000 beneficiaries, or to replenish disaster preparedness stocks.
The floods that hit 11 governorates of the kingdom of Morocco on November 29, 2010 causing 32 deaths, thousands of homeless and property damage, were again a hard test for the vulnerable population.
The involvement of civil society is more than necessary and the role of each is more than important to alleviate the suffering of victims. MRC, with all the structures and volunteers, has successfully established itself again as an important actor player. With its roots in the society, resulting from risk reduction programs in the population, the MRC strengthens the growing capabilities in terms of expertise and that of the local community. To this end the Federation, through its representative office in North Africa, continues to support the National Society in its development programs and response to disasters and possible in emergency situations.
