Preserve resilience of Palestine refugees from Syria in Jordan through the provision of winterization assistance (20-UF-RWA-002)

Project overview

Through the intervention outlined in this project proposal, UNRWA in Jordan envisages to distribute winterization assistance at the end of 2020 in the form of a cash-based transfer to 1,675 PRS families (503 Female-Headed Households, 1,172 Male-Headed Households), amounting to approximately 7,306 PRS individuals (3,786 female, 3,520 male) recorded with the Agency. This will enable the Agency to partially cover (42%) its 2020 winterization needs, that normally amount to approximately USD 1,430,000 to cover the entire PRS caseload in Jordan (approx. 4,300 families). This kind of support is delivered once a year at the beginning of the winter season to support PRS families to prepare for the upcoming season. UNRWA in Jordan has provided winterization support to the entire PRS caseload in 2016, 2017 and 2018, following the same rationale used by UNHCR to provide winterization assistance to Syrian refugees in Jordan.
