Ukrainian PM vows to improve children well-being
Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov on Wednesday said the government will intensify its efforts to improve children well-being, according to Xinhua.
"First and foremost, we need to increase state support for the most vulnerable groups of our junior citizens," Azarov told a government meeting.
The government will increase financial assistance to orphanages and boarding schools so that they can provide better food, health care and education for children, Azarov said.
In addition, Azarov promised to build more public kindergartens to ensure education and fun activities for pre-school kids.
The prime minister also said that Ukraine will construct more public sports facilities in educational establishments to encourage youth to lead a healthy lifestyle.
In 2012, Ukraine initiated a state program aimed at supporting family care, providing better access to education and health care, and increasing funding for disabled children and orphans.
