In northeast Syria, over a decade of conflict has left many families vulnerable to food insecurity. Blumont works to alleviate suffering and meet the shelter and food needs of people in this region. Through the Shelter and Food Emergency Response II (SAFER II) Activity, funded by USAID Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA), the team distributed supplemental food vouchers (SFVs) to non-camp, food-insecure households in Ar-Raqqa, Al-Hasakeh, and Deir ez-Zur. Families could use these monthly vouchers, which varied by household size, to redeem food at participating local vendors. To better understand the impact of this intervention, Blumont partnered with Causal Design to conduct an impact evaluation. Check out this brief to learn more about the evaluation design, findings, challenges, and how it will inform future programming.
This brief is part of the Evaluation in Action series by the Humanitarian Assistance Evidence Cycle (HAEC) Associate Award. This series highlights ongoing and recently completed impact evaluations from around the world.
