Infusions of cash tackle immediate needs in Niger's drought-affected areas

For the first time in an emergency setting, UNICEF is using cash as a way to help families affected by a food crisis.
The Government of Niger – supported by UNICEF and the non-governmental organizations CARE and Save the Children – will distribute money to every woman with at least one child under the age of two in areas most affected by the country’s severe drought.
The cash transfer of $40 per month for three months is aimed at about 30,000 vulnerable families. Payments are being made to cover a period at the end of the ‘lean season,’ when families have already experienced several months of extreme shortages before the October harvest.
