Of the families who received funds through the program, 95% used the money on food, bills and their children’s education.
Save the Children Australia Acting CEO Mat Tinkler — whose organisation orchestrated the “life-saving” digital cash program — elaborated that 27% of those surveyed spent money on water, 16% on medical expenses and a smaller portion on cleaning products.
