The Disaster Management Authority (DMA) works closely with the MOSD during times of disaster. DMA has included a section on disability in its strategy in combating and eradicating poverty to ensure that PWDs are not worse off when disaster strikes. The Ministry continues working will all relevant stakeholders, private and public; for instance, Habitat for Humanity assists in building houses for PWDs who are destitute and live in unhealthy environments. The Ministry also has a department of Social Assistance that has programmes like school bursary, Child Grant Program, Public Assistance etc. We commit to increase the amount of money provided on social protection programmes.

Timeframe and/or implementation plan: By the beginning of the coming financial year (2019/20).
