Free bread delivery to National Aid Fund beneficiaries

National Aid Fund Director General Omar Mashaqbeh said Tuesday that the government decided that families benefiting from the fund receive free deliveries of the staple commodity.

He told Petra that the fund has provided the government with lists of beneficiaries for free distribution, adding that the fund's staff share with employees of other concerned authorities and local administrators the task to distribute bread to the beneficiaries for free.

Mashaqbeh said that the move is aimed to ease conditions for "this category" in light of the precautionary and preventive measures to limit the spread of the coronavirus epidemic, mainly the curfew order.

He said that the free bread distribution process will continue for days, pledging that the fund stands ready at any time to carry out all decisions issued by the government aiming to ease conditions for the citizens as part of efforts to counter coronavirus.
