Families recovering from natural disasters have different needs. While most will need food and water, other essentials are shelter and livelihood recovery. There is no one-size-fits-all in humanitarian action.
Since 2013, we have been leading cash-based assistance to people affected by emergencies in the Philippines. Technically called Multi-purpose Cash Transfers (MPCT), our most recent Emergency Response projects for people affected by #TyphoonRolly and #TyphoonUlysses are using this assistance method to provide our beneficiaries choice and flexibility depending on their priorities.
Cash assistance has also the added benefit of supporting local markets and introducing people to financial institutions.
