Background

7,000 highly vulnerable households (35,000 people) in Damascus and Rural Damascus were selected to receive mixed modality food assistance (combination of in-kind and cashbased transfers)1 from June to November 2020. Food security baseline and end line data were collected from a representative sample of households receiving mixed modality food assistance (hybrid) as well as from comparable households receiving in-kind food assistance (in-kind).

This factsheet summarizes the key findings and conclusions of the comparative analysis that highlights the benefits of mixed modality assistance.
