The Government is calling on development partners and individuals to support social protection, especially for the most vulnerable in the society.
Sports, Culture and Heritage Cabinet Secretary Ambassador Amina Mohamed said among those who need assistance during these harsh economic times occasioned by the Covid 19 pandemic are the society’s elderly, whose dignity needs to be safeguarded.
Speaking when she flagged off Kiligrit fundraising hiking ventures in support of the Mama Ibado Charity foundation, Amina said there is still a need to complement government interventions of caring for the elderly in the country.
