Cash-based food assistance in Kenya’s refugee camps
Between 28 August and 2 September, WFP transferred a total of 13.5 million Kenya Shillings to 33,934 households in the first round of Bamba Chakula transfers in Kakuma, 97% of the households that received SIM cards in July. Refugees began shopping immediately. By the time this update was going to publication, 11 million Kenya Shillings had been used to buy food, more than 80% of what had been transferred.
"This new electronic voucher programme will give us the opportunity to change mindsets on ways of providing humanitarian assistance. It brings a world of new innovative opportunities to the table." - Raouf Mazou, UNHCR Representative in Kenya.
