During the recent New Democracy party congress, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis announced his government will distribute a social dividend of 500-1,000 euros to 200,000 households.
According to the PM the funding support will be distributed to vulnerable groups, such as long-term unemployed people, large families, as well as families with disabled children.
Meanwhile on other social welfare news, the City of Athens announced that it will accommodate three hundred refugee unaccompanied minors at the municipal summer camp facilities at Agios Andreas in Attiki until March 2020.
This decision is included in a Memorandum of Cooperation signed between Athens Municipality and the International Organization for Migration at an Athens City Hall assembly on Monday evening.
The Agios Andreas camp will be prepared well ahead of the arrival annually of hosted children and adults scheduled to stay there in 2020, while the IMO will cover the facility’s maintenance costs for the duration of the children’s stay and for a short time after they leave, clarified the municipality of Athens.
