Vouchers for flood relief in Cotobato city and Sultan Kudarat, ARMM (Mindanao), the Philippines
In response to a rapid-onset emergency, Action Against Hunger / ACF International, with funding from AECID, implemented a cash transfer program in Cotobato City, situated in the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao in the Philippines. The project established a cash voucher program through local supermarkets to provide flood-affected people with essential food and non-food items. The program also piloted the use of debit cards for the first time in the Philippines.
This case study documents the intervention, with a focus on recommending best practices and highlighting lessons learned.
