Unimpeded aid amid the 18-day full lockdown

IFRC and TRC carried out all operations relentlessly with TRC facilities implementing ESSN remaining open to ensure timely provision of assistance and services during the full lockdown across Turkey. 406,937,290 TRY, including quarterly top-ups of 113,674,700 TRY, was transferred to 326,918 households without any delay.

Socio-economic empowerment referrals began

The first systematic internal socio-economic empowerment referrals with the aim to foster self-resilience of the affected populations started as part of ESSN. The system identifies and refers the ESSN recipients to relevant vocational, language trainings, consultancy and livelihood opportunities. The first referrals were carried out in collaboration with TRC’s Community Based Migration Programmes in April 2021.
