This Revised Emergency Appeal seeks a total of 3,233,828 Swiss francs (increased from CHF 2,064,735) to support the Red Cross of Serbia (RCS) to respond to the needs of some 293,580 people. The revised appeal focuses on the provision of basic food and non-food items, additional assistance for winterization, hygiene promotion activities, health care, including First Aid, Restoring Family Links (RFL) services, and beneficiary communications. It also supports the building of the response capacities of the National Society, including through contingency stocks.
Following the most recent assessments and analysis, this revised plan reflects a decreased number of beneficiaries due to the changing patterns of migration and the improved coordination of assistance, but an increased budget to include additional winterization activities. The planned response reflects the current situation and information available at this point of the evolving operation, and will be adjusted based on further developments and more detailed assessments as necessary.
