The Advisory Forum in New York City once again brought together global experts in the NGO community. Hosted by Raptim Humanitarian Travel, along with Emirates, Clements Worldwide, and the Western Union, the forum discussed currency, risk mitigation, staff training and tracking aid workers while in the field.Bringing experts together at the Advisory Forum Event NGOs are currently experiencing problems sending money into some countries. For example, China and Zimbabwe do not want humanitarian funding coming in anymore. In the Dominican Republic, Western Union faced issues wiring money into the country. It took several hours of waiting before the money could be delivered to its destination.Most countries limit the amount of money you can transfer into the country. These limits are listed online, as well as the amount you can take out within a day and per person. For future reference, it is advised not to send large amounts at once, but to send it in smaller installments. This way it is ensured that offices in remote areas will receive enough cash.Another concern with money transfer is protecting the people who are assigned to pick up the funding. The purpose is of visiting a bank is no big secret. There is a risk of getting robbed once the people have left the bank. Though NGOs are already spending 80% more to track their financing, it might be wise to have some sort of security for them.
