Cash assistance is considered one of the most effective way of addressing the variety of needs of affected people, as it promotes the freedom to choose and determine their own needs in terms of food, drinking water, health care, school fees, and improving housing and shelter. 23.4 million people inside Yemen are in dire need of humanitarian protection (according to INGOs) and suffer from poverty, difficult economic conditions, and lack of job opportunities. A pilot cash transfer project was designed and implemented by YRCS in Amran governorate of Eyal suriah district.
