Sri Lanka: Support for internally displaced people - Revised Emergency Appeal n° MDRLK002

Situation Report
Originally published



This appeal is implemented under the framework of the Red Cross Post Conflict Recovery Programme (RC PCRP) in Sri Lanka, since April 2010. The programme aims to contribute to the sustainable rehabilitation and reconstruction in the north of Sri Lanka, an area of the country which remains in great need of development. It primarily supports people who have been displaced and resettled due to the conflict. The entire programme follows the owner-driven approach and direct beneficiary cash transfer mechanism, in order to empower beneficiaries and improve a sense of community ownership.

RC PCRP is an integrated Movement intervention with overall coordination by International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and implemented by Sri Lanka Red Cross Society (SLRCS) with the support of multilateral and bilateral partners (Australian, Canadian, Irish, Korean, Monaco, Norwegian, German, Japanese Red Cross, the Hong Kong branch of Red Cross Society of China, the Taiwan Red Cross Organization, and United Arab Emirates Red Crescent). The Government of India is a non-Red Cross donor providing support to assist resettled families to repair damaged house (400) and construct new houses (17,500) with household toilets. The Movement partners are supporting all the components of RC PCRP, while the Government of India is supporting the shelter and watsan components only.
