But in order to receive these supplies, Premier Andrew Fahie said residents must provide proof that they are facing hardships.
“Assistance to persons or families who are experiencing hardship is very dear to the government’s heart. The 13 House of Assembly members have properly discussed this matter because, as your leader, I do not want to see anyone go hungry that cannot do any better to help feed themselves at this time or feed their families,” Fahie said while addressing the territory via a live broadcast on social media Wednesday evening.
He said persons who qualify for this support may range for those who have been laid off “and would not have had enough funds to shop for these 14 days or persons who were not working” even before the virus outbreak.
“Whatever the hardship, as long as you can prove it … you can get the help from your government via the FSN,” the Premier added.
It always seems impossible until it is done.
