On August 30, North Hamgyong Province in the northeast of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) was severely affected by flash floods caused by heavy rains. Hundreds of people lost their lives, an estimated 600,000 people require humanitarian assistance and at least 30,000 homes were damaged or destroyed. The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) has been working closely with the DPRK Red Cross Society to deliver emergency aid to affected communities including tarpaulins to allow people make temporary shelters, kitchen sets and warm bedding. The IFRC has launched a 15.2 million Swiss Franc emergency appeal (USD 15.5 million, Euros 13.9 million) to reach more than 300,000 with humanitarian assistance over the next 12 months.

02.28 15. SOUNDBITE (English) Chris Staines, Head of Delegation, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in Pyongyang… "Well, the disaster hit in many ways at probably the worst time. It affected crops just a couple of weeks before harvest, and of course with winter closing in, and now less than a month before the first snows are expected at the end of October, it's an area where the temperatures plunge. By the end of October, it will be sub-zero overnight temperatures, and of course, in the middle of winter, in this part of the country it gets below minus 30 degrees, so this is seriously harsh conditions, and that's why we need much more permanent solutions in terms of shelter, in terms of the health services and the access to food, and sorting out issues around safe water, these are really fundamental and important issues, right now, that the communities need."
