Belarusian children from low-income families to receive support ahead of new academic year

On August 28 Minsk children from low-income families will be given school items as part of the nation-wide project promoting social equality among school children. The charity event designed to prepare kids for school started in Minsk in mid-July. 

Anyone could join it. Minsk residents could donate any school items to collection points.

In 2015, Belarusian activists collected thousands of office supplies: pens, notebooks, rulers, and other necessary attributes of school life. These gifts were enough to collect 260 bags for first-graders.
