Druk Gyalpo’s Relief Kidu
The Druk Gyalpo’s Relief Kidu was launched on 14 April 2020 to provide income support to individuals whose livelihoods were affected because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Between April and September 2020, Nu.1.2 billion was granted to over 33,000 beneficiaries and over 14,000 children.
The Relief Kidu has been extended for three months, from October to December 2020. Individuals who applied for or received Kidu in Phase I and/or Phase II need to re-apply for further assessments. Applications are also open to new applicants who have been displaced by the coronavirus pandemic.
