The Cross River State Government is collaborating with the Federal Government to facilitate the Conditional Cash Transfer as announced by the Presidency through the Single Register for Poor and Vulnerable Households (SRPVH) commonly known as the Single Social Register.
In the same vein, the State Government also started the identification of poor and vulnerable households across the state through the State’s Single Register for Poor and Vulnerable Households (SRPVH), as they prepare for a statewide distribution of relief materials.
“The very detailed and updated register is a measure by His Excellency, Sen. (Prof.) Ben Ayade, to ensure every household, irrespective of their location, is catered to especially during this stay at home order.
The households will be considered as first priority as the state prepares to send food items and other relief materials like nose masks, hand sanitizers and wash buckets to ensure strict compliance of the order and thus flatten the curve of the Covid-19 spread”, said the Commissioner for International Development Cooperation, Dr Inyang Asibong.
The MIDC Commissioner is also working with the State Chairman of the COVID- 19 Welfare Committee / Commissioner for Humanities and Social Welfare, Mrs Blessing Egbara, the Commissioner for Agriculture, Hon Okon Owuna and the Chairman COVID- 19 Food Supplies committee / CRS Food Bank Commission, Rev Dr Mercy Akpama to deliver on this mandate.
The Register is periodically updated by the Youth Employment and Social Support Operation (YESSO) State Operations Coordnating Unit (SOCU), which is domiciled in the State Ministry of International Development Cooperation (MIDC).
