This Revised Emergency Appeal seeks CHF 979,346 (increased from CHF 833,945) to enable the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to support the Mongolian Red Cross Society (MRCS) to deliver assistance and support to 27,000 people (5,400 households) for 12 months, with a focus on livelihoods including nutrition and food security, and community preparedness and risk reduction.
