Accelerate cash assistance for recipients around the world with Circle
When a humanitarian crisis strikes, rapid aid deployment is critical to help secure the safety of the people affected. Circle’s solutions empower NGOs to send digital dollars directly to the phones of recipients nearly anywhere in the world, while still granting NGOs the confidence of tracing funds to help prevent fraud and theft.
The money is delivered over the blockchain using USDC, a digital dollar that enables faster settlements. Recipients can redeem their USDC for US dollars or local currency at MoneyGram locations worldwide.

How it works
Every second counts
More aid when and where it's needed most
Unlike the fees and administrative costs of traditional aid distribution systems, with blockchain technology ~100% of aid dollars go to recipients. Recipients can permanently store the digital dollars as USDC, or seamlessly convert USDC to their local currencies in-person at MoneyGram locations worldwide.
