Dr. Nishtar holds a surprise interaction with Ehsaas Emergency Cash beneficiaries in federal capital


April 19, 2020-Islamabad: Dr. Sania Nishtar, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Social Protection and Poverty Alleviation visited Ehsaas Emergency Cash campsites at Sports Complex and G-9/2 areas in the federal capital. This was part of her visits to check the quality of emergency cash distribution in the field without prior intimation. At campsites, Dr. Nishtar interacted with labourers who were turning up with payment messages from Ehsaas to collect Ehsaas Emergency Cash. Each one of them had a heart-wrenching story of being out of work for the last several weeks. Talking about her interaction with beneficiaries, Dr. Nishtar, said, “I paid surprise visits because it is important to have an eye on issues in the field to ensure that we resolve them in real time.” She also appreciated the efforts of local administration, ICT and Police for managing security of campsites.
