Post-Distribution Monitoring (PDM) of UNHCR Multi-Purpose Cash Assistance (MPCA) Program in Ukraine

The purpose of this Post-Distribution Monitoring (PDM) exercise conducted in 2022 was to assess the appropriateness, effectiveness, and coverage of UNHCR's multi-purpose cash assistance program in Ukraine, as well as to capture feedback from cash assistance beneficiaries. The PDM included data from households affected by the war who benefited from cash assistance for basic needs (including hygiene items and food) for a period of 3 months, cash assistance for winterization for a period of 6 months, and cash assistance for utilities given to people who hosted internally displaced persons.

Mindset collected information from the beneficiaries through phone surveys to evaluate the ongoing relevance, efficiency, and scope of the distributed cash assistance, and to gather feedback from the beneficiaries across all 24 administrative divisions (oblasts). In total, over 600 beneficiary households were interviewed about their preferred method of receiving the cash assistance, their use of the money, the impact of the assistance, and any potential non-compliance issues they faced during the cash collection process. Mindset analyzed data and consolidated the findings into a comprehensive report, including recommendations for program improvement.
