Period covered by this Ops Update: 22 May to 30 November 2009.
Appeal target (current): CHF 892,624 (USD 806,936 or EUR 589,938)
Appeal coverage: 63 per cent on 7 December
- This Emergency Appeal was initially launched on 22 May 2009 for CHF 892,624 (USD 806,936 or EUR 589,938) for 6 months to assist some 4,320 beneficiaries or 726 families.
- Due to the late and low appeal coverage significant needs remain unmet. With more funds received later in the year the operation has been extended for another four months and will therefore be completed by 22 March 2010; a Final Report will be made available by 22 June 2010.
- Disaster Relief Emergency Fund (DREF): CHF 157,347 was initially allocated on 23 April 2009 from the International Federation's DREF to support the National Society in delivering immediate assistance to some 750 people or 150 families affected by the mudslide and to replenish emergency stocks. Some 3,000 households were also targeted with hygiene promotion. An additional CHF 134,995 was allocated from the DREF on 12 May to support the National Society in delivering immediate assistance to some 1,160 people or 232 families affected by floods and to replenish emergency stocks. Up to 2,000 households were targeted with hygiene promotion activities.
