News Note - Nepal Earthquakes: Three Months on from First Quake UNICEF Reaches Out to the Most Vulnerable Population with Cash Transfer
Abstract:
Three months after the first of two major earthquakes hit Nepal, UNICEF is reaching out with direct cash transfers to approximately 330,000 households including an estimated 450,000 children in the districts most impacted by the quakes, who with their families are at risk of slipping further into poverty. UNICEF has provided the Government of Nepal with financial and technical support for emergency cash transfers amounting to US$ 15 million through the Government's existing social assistance programmes in the 19 districts declared to be most affected by the earthquakes. Recognising that many children rely on wider family support structures, the cash transfer is provided in the form of a top-up of NRs. 3,000 (US$ 30) to the regular payments received by over 400,000 vulnerable individuals including Dalit children, people with disabilities, widows, the elderly and endangered ethnic groups. In order to provide relief as quickly and efficiently as possible, and without creating separate structures, UNICEF has utilised the government's existing systems and provided support to strengthen programme implementation and monitoring. UNICEF has continued to provide a range of support to the most deprived communities in the 14 most affected districts by providing essential services and supplies.
