Independent service that complements diverse partners.
Private sector engagement
Governments, charities, diaspora and local volunteers all yearn for transition from crisis. During the wait at the political level for conflict resolution, the local and global private sector (in banking, technology, legal and supply chain) has a key role to play in aiding the humanitarian response.
In the large and growing category of ‘the unbanked in crisis zones’, forward-thinking investors are beginning to envision a new frontier to scale solutions that liberate local people through access to financial services, and integrate with social welfare and other payment ecosystems.
SecureAid, with social impact at the core of its mission, offers an independent breakthrough free of vested interests.
Why Syria first?
To succeed in the most complex prevailing geopolitical and humanitarian crisis in the world goes some way to validating the concept elsewhere.
We are proud of recent accomplishments at two levels: freeing up the months-long backlogs of payments to thousands of medical staff and suppliers working in desperate circumstances after months without remuneration, and lightening the workload for the unsung heroes in ‘admin’ who make it all happen.

In our ‘age of distrust’
Lady Stowell, chairwoman of the UK Charity Commission, has as her overriding aim to work with the sector to regain public trust.
SecureAid exists to power the Amanacard, which intends to play its part in restoring trust by consistently delivering practical material support in the world’s toughest environments while connecting at the human level.
Once established as a trusted platform, SecureAid will continue to expand its offering as a digital gateway to senders, recipients, aid implementers, banks, merchants and service facilities. The My Amana app has evolving functionality for the secure storage of critical information that is useful for families on the move, and small businesses striving to survive and grow.
