Local actors are always the backbone of efficient humanitarian response. Today, I joined a town hall meeting in Menzel Temime, North East #Tunisia to see firsthand the great work of @CroissantRouge & witnessed how local volunteers & donations & @IFRC_DREF have made a difference.

Our #mondaymotivation is to increase the efficiency of humanitarian response by strengthening the resources of the #DREF, a collective effort happening right now in our First @IFRC_DREF Pledging Conference! @ifrc @eu_echo
Replying to @ifrc
Every year, small & medium-sized disasters occur in silence, with little attention or financial support. Yet they are still devastating. Affected communities need help to recover, rebuild & prepare for future hazards. The @IFRC_DREF gets needed funds to local responders, fast.

Les catastrophes de petite et moyenne ampleur passent souvent inaperçues alors que les personnes touchées ont besoin d’aide. Le Fonds d’urgence pour les secours en cas de catastrophe de l'IFRC (@IFRC_DREF) permet de leur apporter une assistance immédiate.

Inspired by the support from Governments, National Societies, and partners for a successful—first ever @IFRC_DREF Pledging Conference. This is about lives & livelihoods. It’s about getting the resources to the last mile, as directly as possible. No crisis should be overlooked.

Around 25,000 have been swamped by severe floods in Nepal, displacing thousands who are being supported with tarpaulins, emergency shelter and other relief, with winter fast approaching. @IFRC_DREF makes sure local responders can help when and where it is needed most.
