How Multi-Purpose Cash Assistance helped vulnerable households in urban areas to cope with the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This document contains top-level findings from three monitoring surveys under the Building Resilient Communities in Somalia (BRCiS) Multi-Purpose Cash Assistance (MPCA) project.

The analysis focuses on the urban beneficiaries of the FCDO funded, Rapid Response Fund (RRF) project.

The RRF project was implemented following the first Covid-19 diagnosis in Somalia in March 2020. This response was a direct effort to scale up Covid-19 prevention and to mitigate the economic impact of the pandemic in BRCiS communities.
