Rahat in Discord

Rahat is an open-source blockchain-based platform working to create an environment where our community can effectively explore, create innovative and open aid distribution technology services that are inclusive, accountable, and accessible for everyone. We are a community of contributors - developers, volunteers, researchers, and the humanitarian sector including employees of Rumsan Associates.

Notification feature

In Rahat 2.8.0 Release, we have added a notification feature for Agency App. From now onwards, agencies will be notified whenever new vendors or social mobilizers request for registration in Rahat. They will receive real-time notification in the Agency application and the System User of agency app will also receive an email notification.

Token issued SMS to Beneficiary

In the Rahat aid distribution cycle, the aid agency issues tokens to the Beneficiary’s mobile number. Previously, Social mobilizers or Aid agencies had to personally call or inform all the Beneficiaries about the aid distribution which was not efficient.

Hence, Rahat has released a feature where the beneficiary will receive an SMS after the agency issues them token to their registered mobile number.
