I’m sure that you are aware that the beginning of this year was rough, especially as a result of the Covid19 pandemic that negatively affected the whole world. There were loss of lives, jobs and even so many setups and organizations went out of business.

Note that most of the government aids listed in this article have been running even before the pandemic, but most of the FG programmes listed here were birthed as a result of the pandemic.
