Appeal history:

• This Emergency Appeal was launched on 25 October 2010 for CHF 2,318,438 in cash, kind, or services to support the Sudanese Red Crescent Society (SRCS) to assist 51,354 people (10,271 households or families) for six months.

• CHF 346,944 was initially allocated from the Federation’s DREF to support the National Society to respond

Floods in South Sudan affected an estimated 10,271 families in Jonglei, Lakes, Warrap, Northern Bahr el Ghazal, Unity, Central Equatorial and Upper Nile States, according to a joint Government/ Sudanese Red Crescent assessment in September 2010.

The donor response to the Emergency Appeal was low (9%) and most of the activities could not be implemented as planned. No additional activities were implemented since the last operations update issued in March 2011. Nevertheless, the Sudanese Red Crescent was able to provide humanitarian assistance to affected populations in the form of vector control, water purification, emergency health services and distribution of essential relief items. These interventions reduced the incidence of disease outbreaks and helped prevent health emergencies. The floods operation was conducted in collaboration with the Sudanese Government, Movement Partners including the Canadian Red Cross, Japanese Red Cross, Iranian Red Crescent and United Arab Emirates Red Crescent. The Sudanese Red Crescent Society and the IFRC wish to thank partners and contributors for their response to this appeal.
