This revised emergency appeal, with a budget increased from 51 million Swiss francs to 82 million Swiss francs, requests an additional 45 million Swiss francs. The funds will enable the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to help the Bangladesh Red Crescent Society (BDRCS) continue to provide assistance and support to 260,000 people in Cox’s Bazar until December 31, 2021. Partner National Societies in the country also contribute to these goals through in-kind contributions and bilateral interventions. This review recognizes the continuing needs of the camp and the host population in a protracted crisis, which may develop into a protracted crisis, with the impact of cyclical natural disasters. Within this timeframe, the response aims to absorb and put in place transitional activities to meet longer-term needs. The BDRCS must be endowed with additional capacities to transform emergency response modalities towards more sustainable and community-based solutions, as a partner of choice for the partners of the Movement. The IFRC, with the support of partner National Societies, aims to redefine and reshape the role of BDRCS to play a leading role in expanding its organizational presence and strengthening its capacity to reach the most vulnerable. in host communities and humanitarian landscape.
The long-term humanitarian needs of people from Myanmar will be met, through this revised Appeal, with services such as shelter, basic food and non-food items, WASH, medical health and psychosocial support, the means livelihood, protection and disaster risk reduction. Host communities will also be part of the overall goal, particularly in the areas of shelter, WASH, livelihoods and other interventions. Social inclusion, gender, disability and age will be fully integrated into all activities and contexts.
Additional funds and support are needed to continue to support the National Society in this protracted crisis. Detailed sector needs can be found in the Emergency Action Plan.
