200 disabled benefit from government’s disability welfare scheme

The Tongan government began paying out a monthly payment in benefits to the main carers of 50 disabled to help them with their living.

Each disabled receives TP$65 a month.

The government selected 200 disabled from an estimated 600 disabled all over Tonga to start with in the first payout it made last week.

From the 200 selected 50 received cheques of $520 each. The amount included backdated payments they entitled to since July 2014.

Prime Minister ‘Akilisi Pōhiva said his cabinet made the decision to show his government commitment to its Reach Out Support Programs and to share what it has with people in all levels of living in Tonga including disabled.
