This law ( Disabled People’s Act) which is on the aged led to the creation of a fund which is going to help these elderly. Be that as it may, we now have social programmes aimed at giving assistance to the aged such as the Harmonised Social Welfare Fund and this fund looks at the aged people who have no other source of income and they are given an amount of $20 per month. In order for them to benefit, they should be registered through our Social Welfare Office and we have a board in place which looks at where these people are and also gives us some proposals on how these people can be assisted from their problems and financial status.
