The IFRC’s Disaster Relief Emergency Fund (@IFRC_DREF) is the fastest, most efficient & most transparent way to channel global funding directly to local responders—before & immediately after extreme weather events & other emergencies.

Mental health is one of the most neglected areas of public health. Around 1 billion people are living with a mental disorder. This has only worsened by Covid-19. See the Progress Report on Mental Health & Psychosocial Support within the Intl. Red Cross & Red Crescent Movement.

Eradicating #Polio in Afghanistan is a top priority. Since the start of this year, Afghan Red Crescent's mobile health teams, supported by @ifrc, have vaccinated 31,400 children against polio, with 3,000 children vaccinated in August and 3,600 in September. 📷 @ARCSAfghanistan

Disasters are occurring with increasing frequency and intensity, but most are unseen—devastating lives, infrastructure and economies, without attention, resources or help. That’s why the IFRC Disaster Relief Emergency Fund (@IFRC_DREF) is so vital.

In Kerala - southern #India - Red Cross volunteers and emergency teams have been helping rescue people and are providing relief as thousands have been evacuated in floods that have submerged large areas. Our hearts are with families who have lost loved ones and homes. ❤️
