Summary: 

WFP has launched a phone-based cash transfer pilot project for 54,000 crisis-hit Ivorians in the poorest districts of Abidjan. Here, beneficiaries wait in line to register for the SIM card that will them provide access to the cash transfers. WFP often delivers assistance to the hungry in the form of cash transfers in urban areas where there is food in the markets but the poorest cannot afford to buy it.
