Joint Household Assessment – Food Voucher Project Bekaa Danish Refugee Council (DRC) & World Vision Lebanon (WVL)
As of the end of April 2012, the number of Syrian families displaced in the Bekaa has increased to 2,800 households. Families registered with local partners receive kits of dry food, but they have requested more variety and choice in food items. Given families’ needs, the fact that markets are functioning in the area and that local authorities supported the idea, UNHCR and partners recommended to assess the possibility of implementing food vouchers instead of in-kind distributions. After WFP did a pre-assessment report for a potential food voucher project in the Bekaa, WFP identified WVL and DRC to be the potential partners for the assessments and the project implementation.
