“Yes, if the budget for social assistance, programs to support poverty reduction last year amounted to IDR 460 trillion, most of them were programs that directly received the poor,” said Sri in Jakarta , Wednesday (1/2/2023).

He gave an example that the budget is channeled into social assistance programs such as the Family Hope Program (PKH), which has clear objectives and recipients.

“In PKH there are no seminars, people already have by name, by address, by account number, and also by the number of recipients of the basic necessities. Also what was done by the Minister of Social Affairs Risma made the archipelago an economic hero, giving food, also support for the elderly who can’t afford it all immediately,” he emphasized.
