The Sudanese Ministry of Finance will start a pilot project next week supporting Sudanese families by giving them direct cash support. 500 SDG will be allocated to each family member.
The money will be transferred to the heads of the family. The amount of 500 SDG will be adjusted in the future to compensate for inflation.
The pilot project will start in Soba West in Khartoum, followed by El Buga in Ombadda, El Nasir in Jebel Awlia, and Wadi Soba and Omdawanban in Eastern Nile.
It is expected that the project will cover the entire country before the end of the year. By then, an estimated 32 million people will benefit from the project, some 80 per cent of the total population.
