Cash Assistance to Families Affected by COVID-19 Pandemic
Mindful of ensuring physical distancing, World Vision Philippines maximizes the use of digital technology for its emergency responses.
With the help of community volunteers, the most vulnerable families are efficiently identified, listed and submitted to barangay officials for confirmation.
Beneficiaries are registered on the online system Last Mile Mobile Solutions (LMMS). LMMS is used to record beneficiaries and help manage distribution data. This strengthens the efficiency, effectiveness and accountability of humanitarian service delivery. The system is also used by World Vision and other humanitarian organizations worldwide to enhance emergency response.

LMMS digitises and consequently simplifies beneficiary registration, verification, distribution planning and management, and monitoring and reporting. This in turn improves remote data collection, helps manage aid recipients and enables faster and fairer aid distributions, as well as delivering rapid reporting to aid workers.Read full story
