Cash distribution in Palu also continued since last week, particularly for the target families who have found houses to rent so they could move out of the tent camp and into proper accommodation, and families who need cash to retrofit their damaged houses. CRS and Post Office worked together to ensure that the distribution process followed the Covid-safe principles and prevention measures. CRS staff also held brief Covid-19 prevention education session while the project participants were waiting in the Post Office. In total, 122 project participants have received cash assistance for shelter between April 3-9, 2020.
