In 2021, for the first time, 50 billion soums will be allocated from the budget to provide housing for 900 double orphans. This was announced by President Shavkat Mirziyoyev in his address to the parliament.
It is noted that a new system of special care for children from low-income families, double orphans, children with disabilities and those in need of treatment will be introduced.
“Currently, we have 150,000 children under the age of 18, who are in need of special care in our country. It is our humanistic duty, first of all, to educate them, to help them get a certain profession, to treat the seriously ill, to help orphans find their place in life, to provide them with housing,” the President said.
It is reported that in 2021, for the first time, 50 billion soums will be allocated from the budget to provide housing for 900 double orphans.
“In general, if we create a public fund to support children and allocate 100 billion soums from the budget to systematize such good deeds, I think you will also support this initiative. These funds will be multiplied throughout the year.
I am confident that this initiative will become a nationwide movement, and our generous compatriots will make a worthy contribution to this noble work.
The chambers of Oliy Majlis should strengthen the activities of the Public Fund Supporting Children at the legislative level and provide incentives to our compatriots who are active in this area.
It is also high time to adopt a law on the Ombudsman for Children,” Shavkat Mirziyoyev said.
