Palestine: Flash Floods DREF operation no. MDRPS004


CHF 68,271 (USD 65,380 or EUR 46,402) has been allocated from the Federation's Disaster Relief Emergency Fund (DREF) to support the Palestine Red Crescent Society (Palestine RC) in delivering immediate assistance to some 2,500 beneficiaries. Unearmarked funds to repay DREF are encouraged.

Summary: The operation is planned to enable the Palestine RC to ensure initial humanitarian response to the most vulnerable among the flood victims in Gaza. The DREF support will focus on basic relief needs through the provision of items such as blankets, mattresses, and hygiene kits. This operation is expected to be implemented over three months, and will therefore be completed by the end of April, 2010; a Final Report will be made available three months after the end of the operation (by the end of July, 2010).
