UNFPA Cash Assistance to Support Individual Protection Needs in Northwest Syria

1 February 2021 — By UNFPA

As part of humanitarian programming in northwest Syria, through cross-border operations managed from Turkey, UNFPA provided one-off, unconditional, Individual Protection Assistance (IPA) in the form of cash disbursements to 10,074 vulnerable Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) to cover the costs of their most urgent and vital needs. The one-off cash assistance served as an effective entry point to provide recipients with relevant information on available services including protection and GBV specialized services. Eligibility was based on specific vulnerability criteria in line with the Protection Cluster’s IPA guidelines for Northwest Syria. Transfer amounts reflected the Cash Working Group’s SMEB calculations.
