750 families get cash transfer

ABOUT 750 families have this year benefited from the social cash transfer programme under the department of social welfare in Livingstone.
Assistant social welfare officer Olipa Manenga said each family receives K280 every two months.
Speaking in an interview recently, Ms Manenga said her department is targeting about 2,200 homes by end of the year.
She said the cash transfer has been beneficial as most households have invested the money into income-generating activities.
“I am calling on Government and other stakeholders to help the department with funds to pay school fees for 185 vulnerable children in various schools here.”
