Prime Minister Imran Khan has congratulated Special Assistant on Poverty Alleviation Dr. Sania Nishtar and her team over the World Bank's listing of Ehsaas Emergency Cash program amongst top four social protection interventions globally.

In a tweet on Sunday, he said this is a milestone and well deserved international recognition.

Under Ehsaas Emergency Cash program, cash stipends of twelve thousand rupees were delivered to fifteen million households last year. This represented the largest and most extensive social protection intervention ever in the history of the country.
