"Preparations have been completed for the launch of the programme in 10 states in the first week of next June," reads a statement released by the Ministry of Finance on Saturday.

The ministry added that the 10 states are: the Blue Nile, White Nile, North, East, West and Central Darfur, Sennar and North, South and West Kordofan.

Each family of six members will receive 30 dollars a month, approximately 13000 Sudanese Pounds.

This family support programme enjoys the support of over US$900 million from the international community. The Friends of Sudan pledged to give US$500 million, said Axel van Trotsenburg, World Bank Managing Director Operations during the Paris Conference on 17 May.

The Sudanese government said it transferred money to 182,248 families, in the states of Khartoum, Kassala and the Red Sea.
