Social Protection

Access to adequate social protection, especially cash transfers where these are appropriate, is essential at times of crisis. Learn about the work of the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement in this field, accessing different resources related to cash and social protection below.

Linking, building on, or aligning humanitarian cash responses with national social protection programmes and systems, where feasible and appropriate, can contribute to an efficient and effective response and achieve lasting results. COVID-19 national responses are accelerating this trend using cash as their preferred support modality for social assistance.

If you have any questions related to CVA you can contact the Cash Helpdesk, which provides remote technical advice to staff or volunteers of the Movement
