The present operation is a direct response to the request of the Ministry of International Cooperation in Egypt (MoIC) dated October 26, 2015 pointing out that the torrential rains have resulted in flash floods that have caused tragic losses to the people and disrupted normal livelihood and economic activity. This emergency assistance operation seeks to provide emergency pumping and sanitization services to clear the obstructed sewage system as well as in-kind relief items such as food, blankets and first aid medication to the victims of the floods rendered homeless and with no means of survival. The total cost of the Bank’s intervention is estimated at US$ 1,000,000. The project comprises two (02) components. The first component which concerns the comprising of “in-kind support to victims of the floods in the city of Alexandria” should include the distribution of blankets and food and should be implemented under the overall supervision of MoIC in close coordination with the municipality of Alexandria, the network of NGOs in the city and other stakeholders. The second component which is relative to “Emergency pumping and sanitization of sewage system and waterway” should include the use of specialized vehicles and equipment to pump the water and sanitize the sewage system so as to clear the water passages and allow the rain falls to filter through the system smoothly.
The objective of the this emergency humanitarian relief assistance for Egypt is to alleviate human suffering caused by loss of lives, assets and property due to unprecedented floods in the affected areas.
The Emergency Assistance is expected to provide partial alleviation to some 5000 households, thereby benefitting 25,000 men and women.
