The Druk Gyalpo’s Relief Kidu has provided monthly income support for the past 27 months to 58,667 people since the Covid-19 pandemic hit the country and ended in June.

A press release from the Druk Gyalpo’s Relief Kidu office issued on July 26 stated that a one-time transitional monthly income support for beneficiaries from the tourism sector, given the sector’s re-opening in September 2022, and other distressed beneficiaries who still require this transitional support such as former Drayang employees, would be granted kidu for three more months from July to September 2022.

The office stated that these individuals need not reapply for the kidu.
