There are a total of 56 displacement sites covered by this report which is an increase of 9 % from the previous report. This is due to a 100 percent increase in transitional sites which increased from 15 to 30 sites; thus comprising 53% of all displacement sites. This will increase further in the coming weeks because there are at least 18 bunkhouse sites that have not yet opened. There are 3890 families in the 56 displacement sites with a total of 17,099 individuals. There are a total of 149 women who are pregnant and 411 who are breastfeeding.
