GBARNGA, July 25 ( LINA)- The Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Julia Duncan Cassel, has called on beneficiaries of the
social cash transfer program to make maximum use of funds provided them.

The Social Cash Transfer Program is being sponsored by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and implemented by the government of Liberia through the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection.

Minister Cassel noted that since the inception of the program in 2014, the Ministry has identified with survivors of the deadly Ebola virus,
the less fortunate and vulnerable people in six of Liberia’s fifteen counties.

Minister Cassel explained that government being cognizant of its commitment to usher its citizens out of poverty to adequately
contribute to the country’s development, will help ensure that the beneficiaries make maximum use  of the funds.

She praised the UNDP for the support it continues to render the government and people of Liberia and appealed to other donors to
support similar program across the country to help ordinary Liberians.

Minister Cassel  spoke recently to the Liberia News Agency in Gbarnga after the payment of a little over LD$ 8,000 each to over four hundred vulnerable people in Gbarnga, Bong County.

The funds were paid from the Social Cash Transfer program which focuses on Ebola victims as well as the disabled and other vulnerable
people in the country.

According to Minister Cassel, about 2,980 persons benefited from the second and final payment of the social cash transfer program in Bong

Some beneficiaries of the program who also spoke to LINA thanked the government of Liberia and the United Nations Development Program for the program and promised to utilize the funds for the intended purpose.
