The Samurdhi allowance will be given to 25 poor families in each village and selecting the recipients will be in the hands of the villagers themselves, says minister Daya Gamage.

He made the announcement while addressing several receptions in Ampara district.

No political affiliations will be considered in selecting the recipients, said the minister.

After empowering them with a better standard of living, the recipients will be granted loans to further their lives economically, he added.
