MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Beneficiaries focus their spending overwhelmingly
on basic necessities, particularly housing, food, and
healthcare. From extensive monitoring, it is clear
families are spending only on their most urgent
needs. An increased sense of security and stability
was also reported as a result of the LCC assistance.
Households also stated that making their own
choices about how to use their assistance improved
their self-esteem. Children of LCC beneficiary
households benefited directly from the assistance
by having more of their needs met and feeling more
secure in terms of food and shelter. Despite the
impact on meeting basic needs, most refugee
families continue to face gaps and are often unable
to prioritize additional needs such as education.
