By providing unconditional cash transfers to children, elderly persons, persons with disabilities, women, and the working-age population, the Social Welfare Fund
(SWF) programme aims to financially support families living in poverty in Yemen. It was discontinued in 2015 due to the local conflict, as well as lack of funds, leaving 8 to 9 million people without any social protection coverage. In 2017, the World Bank and UNICEF launched the Second Additional Financing (AF2) for the Yemen Emergency Crisis Response Project, using a database of SWF beneficiary households to target assistance.
