“My youngest was just one month old when my husband disappeared," Ranya, a mother of three daughters in Syria, explained. Before receiving cash assistance from UNRWA, securing nutritious food for her family was difficult for Ranya. “We survived on instant noodles and potatoes."
Ranya's family is one of thousands of female-headed households in Syria. Cash assistance is the only way she can support her family, put healthy food on the table and keep a roof over their heads. "Now that I have received cash assistance, I will buy some chicken as a treat!”
