WFP's Cash Transfer Programme Assists Food-Insecure Yemenis
In November 2013, WFP launched a programme in Yemen that provides cash transfers to 57,000 food-insecure households in Taiz and Ibb governorates to help supplement their food consumption. Some 3.8 million people across the country benefit from this programme. Each targeted family receives the equivalent of US$27.50 per month to purchase food. The programme, which will last 2 years, not only provides cash transfers to vulnerable Yemenis, but also exposes them to awaraness campaigns during the cash distributions that aim to boost their participation in social, health and education programmes supported by WFP's partners.
