Counselling centres to help poor 
[September 4, 2001 - 11:45 GMT]

The Department of Poor Relief has set up forty-two Counselling Centres at local level throughout the country.

The main aim of these centres is to offer counselling facilities to the poor families of the area. Each centre has a qualified volunteer counsellor. There are also house-to-house visiting programmes to educate the poor on their mental and emotional health.

“Already there is a very good response to these centres,” a spokesperson of the Department of Poor Relief said.

Thirty more Counselling centres will be opened before the end of 2001.
