Latest factsheets from the Türkiye CO concerning the ESSN cash safety net and the e-food card programme.

The Emergency Social Safety Net is a European Union-funded multi-purpose cash transfer scheme providing monthly assistance through debit cards to the most vulnerable refugees in Turkey. The E-food card programme ensures that every refugee household in camps receives 50 Turkish Liras per person each month. The cards can be used in participating shops to buy food; giving beneficiaries a measure of independence.
