Huvadhoo Aid started assisting in the administrative process of Farmer’s subsidy given by Ministry of Fisheries and Agriculture

Providing subsidies to registered farmers in the islands by Ministry of Fisheries and Agriculture involves filling the application form for subsidy , attest it from the secretariat of island councils and go to Ministry of fisheries and agriculture to take the subsidy vouchers. If the farmer can not go personally to the ministry a Referrer can go on behalf of the farmer with a letter from the farmer, Farmer’s Identity Card Copy. We believe that it will be difficult for the farmers living in the remote islands to complete this process especially people who can not go to Male’. For the prime motive of assisting farmers Huvadhoo Aid had started assisting the farmers in the administrative process of sending Referrers to the ministry.Farmers who wish to get assistance from HAD can visit our Administrative office and our volunteers will do the process. So far number of farmers had brought their subsidy forms and for taking the vouchers on behalf of them. Huvadhoo Aid is bearing all the stationary costs, printing expenses incurred in the process.
