Humanitarian Cash-Aid Project, Taiz



Humanitarian Cash-Aid Program in partnership with UNICEF, Taiz 2016

Ease the burden on displaced and needy families
and support them with emergency assistance

A collaborative project between HSF, UNICEF, Al-Amal Bank (Hope Bank) and the Social Welfare Fund, to implement the Humanitarian Cash-Aid Project in the city of Taiz. HSF's role was to monitor and evaluate the cash-aid consignment criteria and the remittance process, as implemented by Al-Amal Bank. The project located the affected families in Taiz, mainly in the districts of Cairo, Muthaffar, Sala, Mawyyah, and Maqbana, where the majority of disadvantaged families affected by the war resided. Based on Al-Amal Bank's investigation and remittance operations, the HSF team of observers was dispatched to the cash-aid remittance points in Al-Qadhi valley, Huban, Mawyyah, Same', Barh and Hajda in the city of Taiz. The team verified the cash-aid recipients' credentials and evaluated the remittance process. It then submitted its reports to UNICEF. In December 2015, the project succeeded in reaching the first batch of 5,000 disadvantaged families affected by war in Yemen.

HSF resumed the project in 2016, locating the most impoverished areas in the city in need of humanitarian cash-aid. In collaboration with its chief project partners and field consultants, the foundation heled joint workshops to verify the specified areas and the appropriate selection criteria of beneficiaries. On the field, HSF observing teams also helped facilitate the registration teams' tasks by participating in the registration process and following the issuance of cash-aid registration cards to families.
