CDRC, with the generous assistance of its partners, was able to distribute COMMODITY VOUCHERS or CASH ASSISTANCE to beneficiaries in disaster affected areas. Post Distribution Monitoring (PDM) was done through interviews with beneficiaries. The videotaped interviews were done in the local language so it has to be translated to English for subtitles to be incorporated in the video. These documentaries will be sent to our local and international donors and partners. These will also be posted in our website/facebook account.
What can I do?
You will translate the interviews done with CDRC’s beneficiaries. The Post Distribution Monitoring (PDM) interview is one way of documenting the process of distributing the assistance and the impact of the assistance to those severely affected by disasters. Through these documentaries our donors, partners and those who will view it will have a deeper knowledge and understanding of how our assistance was delivered and how it has impacted the lives of those who received it.
