MOSA launches the Food Card within as part of its programme targeting the poorest families

23-4-2014

The Minister of Social Affairs (MOSA) announced in a statement yesterday the launch of the temporary Food Card issued by the programme to support the poorest families in Lebanon.  The initiative will kick off in Tripoli (Bab el Tebbaneh and Jabal Mohsen) and will subsequently move to the remainder areas of Lebanon.  The card is available to Lebanese families classified as the poorest according to the classification method of the programme.  The announcement also stated that this card is the result of the collaboration between the Ministry, MOSA, UNHCR, the World Food Programme and other parties who expressed their interest in supporting this service. This temporary card provides each family member with 30$ a month (but not exceeding USD 150 per family) through a magnetic prepaid card which can only be used to purchase foodstuff from pre-designated 270 shops spread all over Lebanon. Distribution will begin in June through those MOSA community centers which are implementing the programme to support the poorest families in Lebanon.
