2016/7 Winter Inter-Agency PDM Report
Between August 2016 and March 2017, fourteen organizations provided more than 140,000 Syrian refugee households in Turkey with assistance to stay warm through the harsh winter season. Organizations delivered winter support to refugees in 52 of Turkey’s 81 provinces, primarily through restricted and unrestricted e vouchers which can be used to purchase coal, electric heaters, clothing and other winter related items. Households received assistance depending on assessed needs resulting in either full or partial assistance.
Assistance packages were determined based on the cost of winter heating and clothing, as estimated in the Minimum Expenditure Basket (MEB). This assistance was delivered with the support of twelve funding agencies.
