UNICEF and partners are reaching more than 2,930 children affected by flooding with hygiene promotion, clean water and appropriate temporary sanitation. UNICEF has also supported the initial set-up of temporary learning spaces and the deployment of social workers to provide psycho-social support to affected women, men and children.
UNICEF response is 12% funded and unmet needs of flood affected children include psychosocial support, safe learning spaces and good nutrition.
There has been no new funding after the initial government appeal. The response therefore still remains only 33% (total budget US$4.5mill) funded across all sectors. Decongestion of the temporary relocation site is still largely constrained by the slow pace of pegging new sites on the proposed settlement site.
