There is a line between in-kind humanitarian assistance and cash assistance. In-kind humanitarian assistance refers to the delivery of tangible goods, like food, shelter materials and water, to people in need. Cash assistance, much like the cash that we use in our everyday lives, allows people to do with it what they like and meet what needs they see fit”.

Before the cash support, Fula owned a piece of land where he grew maize and other food crops mainly for family consumption.
