In collaboration with the Ministry of Social Affairs the LPRD has managed to spearhead a social programme that would allow excombatants of +40 years of age to get married and start a family.
Through the Ministry’s fund, the eligible bachelors would receive financial aid for wedding arrangements and necessities, to facilitate and increase social stability.
Using LPRD’s detailed database of 162,000 combatants with strict guidelines and criteria enforced by the Ministry of Social Affairs, the LPRD managed to filter and approve 4,500 eligible candidates from all across the country and are waiting for final authentication and approval from the Ministry of Social Affairs. The release of funds is governed by strict payment measures and procedures ensuring the proper and efficient expenditure of the financial aid. The programme is currently on hold due to the turbulent political situation in the country.
