Charities step in to help people who failed to receive social benefits on time

03-02-2012

Charities have come to the aid of needy people left in the lurch by the late distribution of social welfare benefits. A new computer system that was introduced as part of a far-reaching social reform has proved unreliable resulting in the late distribution of social welfare benefits to thousands of people, including families with children. Charities have been providing people in need with emergency aid, distributing packages containing basis food products to help tide them over the next few days. The Labour and Social Ministry is under fire over the scandal and the minister has promised to dismiss those responsible.
