At World Vision, LMMS is currently used across 29 countries to register and manage more than 4 million beneficiaries. In Kenya alone, as of July, 2016 World Vision’s 13 food assistance projects are reaching approximately 857,820 beneficiaries, including 91,000 in Kakuma and 113,082 in Dadaab refugee camps.
Historically, LMMS has been used in protracted crises and for internally displaced persons from the Kurdistan Region of Iraq to the Central African Republic. While the technology and systems are also able to support refugees, this has yet to happen in practice due to strict legal, political and protection issues.
That is until a recent breakthrough.
