AMMAN — Total beneficiaries from the National Aid Fund (NAF) reached 239,000 individuals who annually receive JD91 million, NAF President Basma Ishaqat said Wednesday.

Over 89,000 families benefit from NAF, including 8,154 new families who have received a total sum of JD650,000 per month since the beginning of the year, Ishaqat told the Jordan News Agency, Petra.

NAF began a comprehensive survey at the beginning of the year to follow up on families receiving monthly assistance, and resulted in increasing allocations for 3,809 families by JD81,462 and reducing other allocations for 5,980 families by JD199,000, she noted.
