According to Snopes, the websides conflated an existing UNHCR programme with a separate humanitarian program involving Soros and Mastercard. The UNHCR programme was launched in Moldova in 2011 and expanded in 2016, and the beneficiaries receive 30-36 Euros a month. Most beneficiaries only receive money for six months, until their asylum applications are evaluated - althogh the period can be extended for refugees and those under humanitarian protection if they are sick or unemployed.
The Mastercard programme was established with the involvement of Mastercard, the Serbian Ministry of Labour and Mercy Corps to provide debit cards to refugees to meet basic needs. Families received cards with EUR 210 and individuals got EUR 70. The money could be used to help meet basic needs. Later, in January 2017 Soros and Mastercard launched a new programme providing private sector solutions to social issues.
