This comes after former Prime Minister Dr Motsoahae Thabane's announcement in March that government will assist with some relief interventions to Basotho in diaspora due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Social Development Minister Mrs 'Matebatso Doti, from September 3, 10,000 Basotho will each receive grocery vouchers worth M350.
She said all the beneficiaries will get SMSes with which they will go to the nearest grocery stores such as Shoprite, U-save and Checkers to get their groceries, noting that the vouchers can only be used once.
