Turkey, Gaziantep, 17 January 2018  ESSN is a multi-purpose cash transfer scheme providing monthly assistance through debit cards to more than one million of the most vulnerable refugees in Turkey. Those receiving assistance decide for themselves how to cover essential needs like rent, bills, food, and medicine. The ESSN is the largest EU humanitarian aid programme ever and is part of the EUR 3 billion Facility for Refugees in Turkey. It was launched in December 2016 and is funded until the end of January 2019 thanks to a contribution of EUR 1 billion from the EU. In an unprecedented approach, WFP and Turkish Red Crescent (TRC) implement the ESSN from shared Joint Management Cell (JMC) premises in Ankara. WFP provides monitoring and technical support and plays a key role in coordinating Basic Needs assistance in Turkey. TRC manages the delivery of the programme nationwide, working with the Ministry of Family and Social Policies and its welfare centres, which process applications for the ESSN. The Ministry of Interior’s Directorates General for Migration Management (DGMM) and Population and Citizenship Affairs (DGPC) are responsible for ID issuance and address registration respectively; both are ESSN prerequisites. ECHO, the EU agency funding the ESSN, and the Government of Turkey Disaster and Emergency Presidency (AFAD) co-chair the ESSN Governing Board, providing oversight, problem solving, and strategic direction for the ESSN programme. Each eligible household receives a card like this. Every month, it is topped up with 120 Turkish Liras (USD 30) for each member of the household. They also receive periodic “top-ups”. The card can be used at ATMs or to pay in shops.  The EU has invested almost 1 billion Euros into the Emergency Social Safety Net Programme which is the largest humanitarian relief programme in EU History. Thanks to the partnership between the Government of Turkey and the EU, over a million refugees receive cash aid in Turkey.  In the Photo: Syrian refugee Rukeyye (25), mother of 3, can feed her children with the support of the Emergency Social Safety Net cash assistance, the only regular income of the family. Her husband, Ahmad (30), works in construction – but work is irregular at best and non-existent during winter.  Originally from Azaz, now live with their 4 children in a very small apartment in Gaziantep with their children: Omer (4), Orjwan (6) and Hatije (6 months). EU-funded Emergency Social Safety Net cash assistance is how they pay rent and how they keep their house warm in ice-cold winters of Southeast Turkey.  Photo: WFP/Sinan Cakmak

Each eligible household receives a card like this. Every month, it is topped up with 120 Turkish Liras (USD 30) for each member of the household. They also receive periodic “top-ups”. The card can be used at ATMs or to pay in shops.  The EU has invested almost 1 billion Euros into the Emergency Social Safety Net Programme which is the largest humanitarian relief programme in EU History. Thanks to the partnership between the Government of Turkey and the EU, over a million refugees receive cash aid in Turkey.

She lost her husband in an airstrike in 2013 which prompted her to take her family and leave their home in Aleppo, Syria.  Even though Nehle works whenever she can find work, it is not enough to look after her family. EU-funded Emergency Social Safety Net cash assistance helps her to make ends meet.

Turkey, Ankara, 27 December 2017  WFP works with the Turkish Red Crescent to help provide food assistance to 140,000 of the most vulnerable Syrian refugees still living in camps in Turkey. Starting in October 2012, the two organizations rolled out an e-food card programme that adds a monthly balance to families’ debit cards so that they can buy food from local shops. While helping improve food security, this injects nearly US$200 million into the Turkish economy.  In the Photo: Walid, father of five is standing in his little shop in Ankara. Although the shop brings a little income, ESSN is the only regular income the family has.   Photo: WFP/Ozan Toptas
