Prime Minister Imran Khan said the Ehsaas Emergency Cash Program has provided assistance to millions of households in the most difficult situations.

He expressed these views during a federal cabinet meeting in Islamabad, where the Ehsaas Emergency Cash Program report was presented with a detailed methodology of design and insights from real-time evaluations.

The Cabinet appreciates the first report of its kind on Ehsaas Cash written by the Prime Minister’s Special Assistant for Social Protection and Poverty Alleviation, Dr. Sania Nishtar.

The Prime Minister, when appreciating the report, said the Ehsaas Emergency Cash Program was transparent, based on rules, apolitical and comprehensive.

The comprehensive report details the design and implementation of the Ehsaas Emergency Cash Program, which allocated 203 billion rupees to provide one-time emergency cash to 16.9 million families in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Given family size, this represents nearly 109 million people or half of the country’s population, representing the largest and most extensive social protection intervention in the country’s history.
