Yesterday, HRH Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince and Prime Minister held his weekly virtual cabinet meeting. During the meeting, HRH issued directives to double disability pensions and social security assistance.
In addition to that, HRH also ordered the Ministry of Labour and Social Development to start disbursing the payments during the month of Ramadan.
The Ministry of Labour and Social Development, in turn, just announced that the payments will be transferred to 17052 families and 12459 individuals with special needs by the 15th of this month.
This all comes as part of the government’s plan to support those with special needs as well as families in need during special occasions like Ramadan.
