UNHCR Cash Assistance: Improving refugees lives and supporting local economies

2016 — By Ahmad Majali, Phoebe Amend, Cassandra Welch, Hélène Daubelcour, Robert Sibson, Mohammad Hawari, Dipendra Shahi, Nuha Abdallah

UNHCR’s Cash-Based Interventions (CBI) support the most vulnerable Syrian refugees living within the host community in Jordan. Thanks to generous donor support last year, over 30,000 households received monthly cash assistance, winterisation cash, and cash for health, totalling nearly US $ 85 million. Families were chosen for assistance following a home visit. Using a humanitarian assessment model, the Vulnerability Assessment Framework (VAF), families received a ranking for vulnerability.

This report presents the findings of the four post-distribution monitoring (PDM) exercises conducted in 2016. It analyses the results of home visits and phone interviews with a geographically representative sample of 1,690 beneficiary households.
