This report provides the key findings of the Post-Distribution Monitoring Survey, which was conducted in January and February 2021 among 385 families who benefitted from the Cash Transfer for Basic Needs Support Programme in Rural Damascus.

The Cash Transfer for Basic Needs Support Programme consists of a one-time and unconditional cash transfer to families with children in urban and peri-urban areas where there is high level of displacement. The main objective of the programme is to support families to respond to the essential needs of their children and help them cope with the ongoing socio-economic hardship in Syria. 

The objectives of the survey are to (i) assess the effectiveness and efficiency of the programme; and (ii) collect feedback from beneficiaries about their perception and satisfaction with the programme.

The findings provide invaluable insights about the socio-economic profiles of families reached through UNICEF support. They are also critical to help UNICEF further strengthen the impact and quality of its interventions for children in Syria.
