An amount of $59,000 was recovered by the Department of Social Welfare’s Labasa office in the past month during its recertification process that ended on July 10.

This was revealed by Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation Mereseini Vuniwaqa.

The recertification process was for recipients of the poverty benefit scheme, care protection allowance for children and the pension scheme.

Mrs Vuniwaqa said officers in their Labasa office had briefed her during her Northern tour last week on the financial recovery.
