Jayapura, Jubi – Papua Provincial Government through Public Welfare Bureau allocates Rp 21.3 billion from the autonomy fund for 47 religious institutions in 2018.
The Head of Papua Public Welfare Bureau Naftali Yogi said the amount is higher than it was in the previous year, which was only Rp 21.7 billion. “Last June we have signed a MoU with 47 religious institutions who are now waiting for the disbursement process,” Yogi told reporters in Jayapura on Wednesday (4/7/2018).
For the disbursement process, he said the bureau has coordinated with the Regional Financial and Asset Management Board of Papua. “So, this year the religious aid will be transferred to the religious institutions at once to support the religious activities programs from lacking funds,” he said.
Meanwhile, Papua Regional Secretary Hery Dosinaen said the provincial government gives their full trust to the religious institutions, so they better manage these funds correctly. “They must keep and well manage this trust,” said Dosinaen. (*)
