HELP FOR NEEDY DEPENDS ON WHICH TOWN COUNCILS THEY ARE IN?

I am somewhat confused. Can anyone help to explain what does “would ensure that there was no excessive help given to some particular needy persons on the one hand, and no neglect of families on the other hand, ensuring a spread of support to all households that need support” mean? According to the ComCare annual report for FY2015 – there were 39,548 unique households (86,759 unique beneficiaries) that received financial assistance.

So, how do we decide which of the 39,548 households to give the eggs for only 2,500 needy households to? Is it not indicative, arguably, of how inadequate our assistance programmes under ComCare are? With each Community Development Council (CDC) or town council having their own piecemeal assistance programmes – we may have a situation whereby getting milk powder or eggs, etc, may depend on where you live.
