We are providing assistance to eligible families and individuals, who are currently living in unsafe and inadequate housing, to apply for and receive financial support to cover the cost of housing. We believe that this scheme will have a positive impact on the lives of many of our most vulnerable citizens.
The scheme will provide a safe and secure environment to live and raise families, while also helping to reduce poverty and inequality.
