E-Voucher Food Card Program by WFP/Turkish Red Crescent

Turkish Red Crescent Society partnered with the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to launch the e-voucher food card programme to assist thousands of Syrians who were under international protection in Turkey. The e-voucher Food Card works like a credit card, and is pre-loaded with a specific amount of money per family member twice a month. This value must be sufficient to support a well-balanced diet of adequate calories (at least 2,100 kilocalories per person per day for emergency situation). These cards can be used in shops that are contracted by the Turkish Red Crescent, and available in/or nearby to camps. These cards are designed to support beneficiaries living in camps and enable them to purchase a sufficient amount of nutritious food items to meet household needs.
