Syrian refugee families are receiving a card carrying a one-time value of USD 200 (for families made up of up to three individuals), USD 250 (for families made up of four to five individuals) and USD 300 (for families composed of six or more individuals). The cards for refugee families of other nationalities carry a value of USD 250 (for families composed of up to five individuals) and USD 300 for larger families (composed of six or more individuals). The debit cards can be used in any shop which is part of the MasterCard circuit, allowing refugees to buy a variety of goods or services in thousands of shops across the country.
