Concern has been working closely with its aid agency partners People in Need and Welthungerhilfe as part of Alliance2015, which is a partnership of European NGOs, providing food, water and other aid to the most vulnerable.
Together with its partners, Concern has been packing and distributing food to 11,600 families – over 70,000 people and making sure families have water purification tablets to prevent the spread of waterborne diseases – a huge risk after floods.
They also have a helpdesk and free hotline set up to deal with any complaints or issues flood survivors have as they get assistance – for example, if a flood affected family has been left off the list for assistance by mistake.
Concern said it and its Alliance2015 partners will continue their close cooperation with local governments to ensure that none of the affected households are left behind as relief and recovery efforts continue to arrive.
