Ever since the Coronavirus broke out, many people got affected negatively, especially workers. Some employees were capable of proceeding their work all the way from home, but depending on their job description. Others were incapable of doing so because their work relied on having to be somewhere or do something physical.
For instance, employees who work in factories had lost a lot throughout this entire catastrophe. The hard part is that no work meant to money. Have you guys imagined how this has affected thousands and thousands of Egyptian families?
Those of whom have children to feed and an entire family to provide for and take care of have been struggling to fight and make a living. Which is why it was great news to hear that the Mohamed Saafan, the Minister of Manpower, has told that a great number of irregular workers applied for the ministry’s website will thankfully receive financial assistance worth 500LE on a monthly basis.
The number of people who have done so have reached a total of 1.2 million. The Egyptian government is doing something extremely kind to help support broken families and people who ca n barely make a living. While some people are thankful for them doing so, others believe that 500LE can barely compensate for what they had lost, especially having a large family and kids to take care of but the government is truly doing its best to suffice.
It was claimed that Sunday, yesterday morning, over 500,000 applicants have applied and will currently be reviewed for eligibility. As for the people who had already registered a while back, they have already started receiving their allowance as an emergency measure needed throughout the COVID-19 outbreak.
So far, Egypt has already spent LE100 billion to face the catastrophe that is the pandemic for things such as healthcare services, social safety network, and much more. Mostafa el Madbouly, Egyptian Prime Minister, had announced that the Ministry of Health and Population was granted 1 billion Egyptian Pounds to handle the pandemic crisis.
