The platform allows the exchange of short text messages between the Ministry and citizens for free to verify if the social services have been rightfully delivered to the beneficiaries as well as get their feedback about the services. In the future, the platform will include all the social services provided by the Ministry, which could offer an information hub based on the data received from citizens.
