Highlights

Lebanon has experienced serious national, eco-nomic and social challenges in the last few years. Political instability and macroeconomic challenges have been compounded by the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, an explosion at the port of Beirut in August 2020, spiraling hyperinflation, and declining employment opportunities. The situation has negatively affected many households, especially the most vulnerable, including women and children.

In response, UNICEF Lebanon, in collaboration with the Ministry of Social Affairs (MoSA), launched the Haddi programme to provide a monthly un-conditional child grant as additional support to the most vulnerable households with women and children already benefitting from other services implemented by UNICEF through various partners.

Haddi was providing a monthly cash amount of the objectives of the grant are to limit cuts in spending on children, reduce reliance on negative-coping strategies, and improve child wellbeing. This document is the endline report of an impact evaluation of Haddi.
