Belarus to strengthen social support for vulnerable families with kids

Belarus will strengthen social support to the most vulnerable families with children. The relevant bill has already been considered by the deputies in the first reading and is now being prepared for the second one.

According to the new edition, parents looking after disabled children are proposed to provide the right to work part-time or at home preserving the right for benefits.

In addition, the amount of benefits paid for care for a disabled child (third or fourth disability group) will increase.

Another important innovation concerns women receiving maternity leave benefits in the minimum amount. The updated bill proposes to make additional payments for some of them.
