Evaluation of Oxfam GB’s Cash for Rent Programme in Lebanon
In March 2013 the DEC launched an appeal to respond to the humanitarian crisis caused by the deepening civil war in Syria. Oxfam GB was allocated a total of £1,189,797 of the £12 million raised, of which it apportioned £237,951 to assisting Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
This evaluation found that Oxfam delivered a highly relevant project that achieved its primary objective in terms of significantly contributing to meeting the cash-for-rent needs of vulnerable Syrian refugee households for two months. It also confirmed that Oxfam was able to reach almost double the initial target number of beneficiary households (420) by focusing DEC-funding solely on cash-for rent and using funding from additional sources for other types of assistance.
