Time is of the essence in disaster response, and supporting communities who have often lost all of their assets is essential. A major component of this response is access to ready cash and payment methods, which proves extremely difficult in these kind of situations.

Nature and Context

Creating the most efficient, simple process to transfer cash during emergencies. Previously, support has only been possible with significant logistical investment and security risk, but new tech and humanitarian efforts can prepare prepaid cards prior to scheduled distribution. These cards are then ready to use by the community immediately, when quick access to money is most important. The community focus is key. Empowering those affected by disasters to help themselves is all-important.
