Press Release:-  Approximately three hundred (300) persons affected by Hurricane Elsa are beneficiaries of a one-time cash payment through the Ministry of Equity, Social Justice and Empowerment under a Pilot Project funded by the World Food Programme (WFP).

This cash transfer programme is part of a larger project, which provided an opportunity to test a new vulnerability index, developed by the Ministry of Equity and WFP.

This new index was instrumental in identifying persons who should be prioritized for assistance after a shock.

On Monday, January 31, 2022, a Post Distribution Monitoring survey was launched to assess the value of this cash assistance to beneficiaries and solicit feedback on the programme.
