Ministry of Labor and Social Policies in FYR Macedonia will offer free summer holidays for 2 thousand children.

This was announced today by the acting minister, Dime Spasov, while there will be a public competition for the selection of children which belong to endangered categories.

“Based on the universal right that every child has for social security, recreation and living standards, this year we will implement a project to offer free holidays for children coming from socially endangered families”, said minister Spasov today.

The project has been implemented since 2012 and so far, 6 thousand children have benefited free summer and winter holidays.

All parents who are on the social benefit scheme can apply on behalf of their children. /ibna/
