The special assistant reviewed the arrangements made at the centre and spoke to the deserving women and men present there.

Ehsaas Emergency Cash program was launched by Prime Minister Imran Khan on April 1, 2020 for the poor and deserving families facing economic hardship in wake of the coronavirus crisis.

The financial assistance under the program is meant to help them buy ration so that they don’t go hungry. The program covers 12 million families while a sum of Rs12,000 per family is being provided by the government. The total budget for the programme is Rs144 billion.

Recently, the United States also contributed $5 million to the Ehsaas program to provide extra support to over 70,000 families so they can buy food and items of basic necessity.
