Finnish Red Cross humanitarian operations in 2019

Description

MFA supports FRC's disaster response with 500 000 euros in 2019. In the past ten years, FRC has participated in several Red Cross Red Crescent Movement emergency operations through Emergency Response /Rapid Deployment Unit (ERU/RDU), and Field Assessment and Coordination Team (FACT) delegate deployments - on average two deployments per year. The most deployed units have been logistics and emergency health deployments, i.e. clinics or hospitals, where timely funding from the MFA is essential to ensure sufficient funds and a rapid deployment. In addition, MFA supports FRC's food security operation in Southern Africa as El Nino is predicted to cause severe food insecurity in the area. MFA support for this operation is 700 000 euros.
