Outcome Analysis: Cash transfer programming response to the Ebola crisis in Sierra Leone and Liberia

April 2018 — By Yuve Guluma, Amandine Frisetti

The United States Agency for International Development/Food for Peace (USAID/FFP) supported Cash Transfer Programming (CTP) response to the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone and Liberia greatly contributed to the recovery of affected communities and households. The CTP response provided a safety net to assist targeted communities to deal with transient food insecurity, and surpassed the objective of reducing transient food insecurity by also contributing to the recovery of livelihoods eroded by the Ebola crisis. Over a period of six to approximately 31 months and in a highly challenging context of poor road and telecommunications networks, seven USAID/FFP implementing partners in Sierra Leone and Liberia came together with Government focal points, service providers and community leaders to successfully provide monthly or quarterly cash payments to over 120,000 households.
