Short Description:

Overall goal

This emergency appeal reflects the huge increase in needs in Syria, based on the developing and

unpredictable situation and is seeking to support the Syrian Arab Red Crescent National Society (SARC) in directly assisting 200,000 beneficiaries over a period of 12 months, primarily in the

areas of health, relief and livelihoods. The Appeal also focuses on organisational development and capacitybuilding, to reinforce the National Society’s ability to pursue its humanitarian assistance to approx. 1.5 million affected people.

Specifically, the Federation and SARC aim to:

Meet the immediate needs of up to 30,000 families through relief distributions.

Have at least 45,000 persons benefit from SARC support to emergency and basic health care.

Provide psycho-social support to population and staff/volunteers engaged in emergency response.

Support targeted households with livelihood projects, including asset replacement and income generation activities.

Provide basic shelter support for both host and displaced families.

Ensure the National Syrian Arab Red Crescent Society receives support for its infrastructure and well-functioning.
