Evidence Shows Giving Cash To Refugees Is Effective Form Of Aid

Reuters: Cash aid for refugees succeeds despite donors’ doubts
“For decades, aid groups have assumed they know what’s best for refugees and the poor; a growing body of evidence suggests they’re wrong. … Aid agencies are tentatively … giving away cash and letting refugees decide for themselves what they need. While the results may be unexpected, the money is being wisely spent and rarely wasted — contrary to old prejudices among donors…” (Holmes, 10/24).
