WFP Lebanon verify cash cards subsidized by the UNHCR, WFP and UNICEF to support their refugees who are able to use it for withdrawing cash at ATMs or as a payment method in supermarkets. They needed an identification and a verification biometric solution in order to verify both the cash cards as well as the beneficiaries. This is to ensure that the right entitlement is distributed to those who are entitled to it.
Large scale and unprecedented crisis with influx of refugees in Lebanon
WFP Lebanon support refugees who are in need of humanitarian aid and they have found themselves in unprecedented social, economic and environmental crisis due to the large influx of Syrian refugees. In the midst of this turmoil, and in line with one of its CSR pillars namely “Economic Inclusion”, Liban Post signed several MOU’s with various authorities, NGO’s and international organizations in this unique and creative approach for a postal establishment. Biometric verification solution was required to increase speed, efficiency and to provide 100% accuracy in the verification of refugees. This is to remove any potential duplication and identity card fraud, ensuring that aid is provided to those who are entitled to it and with complete dignity.
