“The new assistance package to children will cover  those families who have not received any aid from the state in the quarantine and post-quarantine period,” Georgia’s Finance Minister Mikhail Machavariani says.

 

According to Machavariani, the quarantine measures  caused great damage to the country's economy, the state rendered assistance to a part of the population and business such as  monetary compensation paid  to those who were left without job, the payment of utilities and an  increase in pensions.


 

“The government carried out  sectoral measures - packages to help tourism, agriculture, the construction sector and  covered a variety of groups, but still  a certain part of society did not receive any support from the state. The child assistance program was developed just for them  as part of the anti-crisis plan, ”said Minister of Finance of Georgia Ivane Machavariani.

 

In the Minister’s words,  a one-time payment of an allowance in the amount of GEL 200 will be  provided to all children under the age of 17 without exception.
