Kenya Red Cross Society using new technology to reach communities in hardship areas

Kenya Red Cross Society responded to the severe drought through cash transfers in Marsabit county. Unlike an earlier drought, where KRCS used manual system to pay beneficiaries in the same geographical area,  this year the organisation used a payment technology provided by a company called Compulynx. Despite challenges experienced at the initial stages of the operation, this technology worked for us and the community we served as it improved efficiency and accountability of the cash transfer operation.
