HELP organization provides support which is given to the supported force as a whole and not to any particular subdivision thereof. Kind supports are free food or housing that a family receives, usually in exchange for work or services. In-kind resources, or non-cash contributions, might be things you'd otherwise pay for, or they might be things that money just can't buy. When someone volunteers to give you a service, supplies or free help, you're receiving inkind support. If another organization provides free of charge office equipment or meeting space, that’s in-kind support.
Traditionally in-kind assistance, through the provision of commodities and services, has dominated humanitarian aid. Recently there has been an acknowledgement that cash transfers on their own or in complement to in-kind distributions can be effective in humanitarian assistance by supporting beneficiary access to commodities and services. Cash transfers offer greater choice to beneficiaries and foster dignity in the receipt of assistance.
