Bangladesh/Myanmar: Tropical Cyclone Mora
Tropical Cyclone Mora made landfall along the southeast coast of Bangladesh on 30 May 2017, bringing strong wind and heavy rain that impacted the Cox’s Bazar and the Chittagong Hills Tract areas of Bangladesh and several regions in Myanmar, in particular Rakhine State. According to the Government of Bangladesh close to 3 million people have been affected. Six makeshift camps, hosting a population of 148 100 very vulnerable Rohingya refugees, were severely impacted. In Myanmar, the shelters in the Rohingya camps around Sittwe, housing 120 000 IDPs, and Northern Rakhine State have been particularly hit. The situation in Northern Rakhine is of much concern because the cyclone impacted the same communities that had been affected by the October 2016 events, in the sequence of which more than 2 000 homes had been destroyed and livelihoods seriously disrupted. To address the needs of the most vulnerable people in the most affected areas, an amount of EUR 1 500 000 has been added to this HIP, of which EUR 1 000 000 for Bangladesh and EUR 500 000 for Myanmar. In Bangladesh the response will focus on the provision of food assistance and nutrition, emergency shelter and water and sanitation. In Myanmar the response will focus on food assistance and nutrition, emergency shelter and NFIs; as a particular concern in Northern Rakhine, protection will be mainstreamed in the intervention.
Philippines: Marawi - Mindanao conflict
Since the outbreak of fighting on May 23rd, Marawi city in Mindanao has been heavily bombarded. As of 30 June, about 230 people have been killed due to the conflict and 320 000 people have already fled the city. Over 22 000 people (7% of the total of 320 000 IDPs) are in 79 operating evacuation centres and the rest are with host families. It is reported that 59 people died at the evacuation centres due to dehydration. With this massive number of IDPs, the needs are overwhelming from all sectors. Priority issues remain with food, water, sanitation and hygiene in evacuation centres. The protection situation is also extremely concerning since return is almost impossible as the city has been burnt and destroyed. To address the needs of the most vulnerable people affected by this conflict an amount of EUR 850 000 for Philippines has been added to this HIP. The response will focus to address protection and IHL needs, as well as provide emergency assistance more specifically in sectors as food assistance and nutrition, emergency shelter and WASH.
