This Emergency Appeal seeks 2,060,682 Swiss francs to enable the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to support the Sri Lanka Red Cross Society (SLRCS) in delivering assistance and support to 40,000 people affected by floods and landslides over nine months. The operation focuses on the following sectors: shelter (including non-food items); livelihoods; water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); health; restoring family links (RFL), disaster risk reduction(DRR) and National Society capacity building. The Appeal also reflects the allocation of 158,046 Swiss francs to support the IFRC’s role as convenor of the IASC Shelter Cluster. The planned response reflects the current situation and information available at this time. It is likely to be adjusted based on further developments and detailed assessments.
