Zomba, March 6: KFW Development Bank mission in Malawi has commended government for smooth implementation of the social cash transfer programme.

Speaking Sunday in Zomba after visiting some households benefiting from the programme, the Bank’s Head of Health, Education and Social Protection Division for south-reign Africa, Marlis Sieburger said the team was impressed to see vulnerable Malawians from the rural areas benefiting from the social protection programme.

She said it was exciting to note the inclusion of elderly persons in the programme and the transformation of some families who have improved their livelihood from the resources given.

Sieburger said though she noted that the programme only supported 10 percent of poor Malawians, she could not commit for more funds to carter for more vulnerable families.

District Commissioner (DC) for Zomba, Reignard Chavula Chavula said social cash transfer is one of the important social protection programme and prayed it continued for more years to come.

With funding from the European Union, KFW development Bank is implementing the social cash transfer in some selected districts of the country.
