The Ministry of Women, Children and Social Protection has announced the gradual phasing out of the manual voucher payment system effective this month.

For clarification or further information regarding this change, people are encouraged to direct their queries to the nearest Social Welfare Office or consult the provided contacts on the Ministry’s official pages.
