3.1 Response team selection and deployment

The Kenya Red Cross Society uses a number of staff and volunteers from the Headquarter, regions and county branches. The CTP response teams are oriented on a number of key issues and equipped with all the necessary materials and resources to ensure smooth operation.

As a corporate user of Safaricom, KRCS employs its MPESA platform to disburse cash to the identified beneficiaries. Where MPESA isn’t feasible, KRCS uses banks (including the Hunger SafetyNet Programme (HSNP) platform) and vendors to pay beneficiaries.

KRCS teams spend time to explain the program objectives, goals and criteria to the local authorities.
