Sti­ge­su to re­cei­ve par­ti­al pay­ment

Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

The Foun­da­ti­on for the Han­di­cap­ped in Su­ri­na­me (Sti­ge­su) will re­por­ted­ly a por­ti­on of the sub­si­dy. Le­ny Har­den­bol, coo­r­di­na­tor at the foun­da­ti­on told Ti­mes of Su­ri­na­me that the pa­per­work for the pro­vi­si­o­nal sub­si­dy for 2016 has al­rea­dy been ap­pro­ved by the Fi­nan­ce Mi­ni­stry. She poin­ted out that she would check the foun­da­ti­on’s bank ac­count to de­ter­mi­ne if the mo­ney has al­rea­dy been trans­fer­red and how much the foun­da­ti­on has ac­tu­al­ly re­cei­ved. The foun­da­ti­on re­pe­a­ted­ly in­di­ca­ted that it was in fi­nan­ci­al trou­ble and that the govern­ment had not trans­fer­red sub­si­dy funds for the past two ye­ars. Har­den­bol ex­plai­ned that the ex­pen­ses of the out­pa­tients’ cen­ter are being co­ver­ed with the pa­ren­tal con­tri­bu­ti­on. Other ex­pen­ses such as sa­la­ries and taxes de­ple­te hu­ge por­ti­ons of the foun­da­ti­on’s funds. Due to the de­lay in pay­ment of sub­si­dy, the foun­da­ti­on had to ta­ke se­ve­r­al loans in or­der to remain ope­ra­ti­o­nal. But the foun­da­ti­on must pay back the loans.
