With support from the European Commission, UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is implementing a cash card assistance programme in Greece to help refugee and migrants cover their basic needs. The programme enables the beneficiaries the dignity of choice, restoring their confidence while supporting the local economy, increasing efficiency of aid delivery and reducing bureaucracy.

UNHCR is carrying out this programme in partnership with the International Rescue Committee (IRC), the International Federation of Red Cross (IFRC), Mercy Corps, Samaritan’s Purse, Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and Care.
