Prime Minister Omar Razzaz revealed on Thursday, April 25, 2019, a new program that supports Jordanian families.

"During the holy month of Ramadan, the government will start implementing the supplementary support program for Jordanian families that are unable to achieve life’s necessities even if one of its members is working," Razzaz said during the launch of the project of Social Protection Programme.

Razzaz added that the new program targets families with working people, who are still below the poverty line.

Razzaz announced that the new government support program will include 25,000 additional families this year.

"The government has launched a new project to support families in the field of renewable energy to save them from the energy bill that drains their incomes.”

Razzaz revealed that the government is offering public support vouchers for Jordanians in poor areas, stressing that his government will work on providing more services to Jordanian families in areas of public transport, health, education, and others, thus contributing to raising the standards of living for a decent life.
