In response, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) has mobilized resources to respond effectively to this health emergency, in prevention, vector control, psychosocial support and – above all – awareness and information.
The IFRC has launched an emergency appeal with the goal of raising 2.4 million CHF ($2.4 million US dollars) to reach up to 1 million people. Moreover, some societies have asked the IFRC’s Disaster Relief Emergency Fund (DREF) for additional funds for specific operations in their countries.
