6.3 million people to be assisted

Appeal timeframe: 8 months

End date: December 2014

CHF 227,366 DREF allocated

CHF 1,366,156 budget

Launched: 18 July 2014

This revised Emergency Appeal for a total of CHF 1,366,156 (increased from CHF 880,000) enables the IFRC to support the Sierra Leone Red Cross Society (SLRCS) to deliver assistance and support to some 6.3m people, with a focus on information and communication, education, awareness raising, and social mobilization, surveillance, case identification and contact management, case management (including management of dead bodies), psychosocial support, and regional preparedness and response. With the Emergency Response Unit (ERU) valued at some CHF 264,400, the total amount sought amounts to CHF 1.3m. The revised plan reflects an increase in activities (including dead body management) and geographic scope. The response reflects the current situation and information available at this point of the evolving operation, and will be adjusted based on further developments and more detailed assessments.
