Family and Social Services Minister Derya Yanık reported that a total of 236 million TL Social and Economic Support (SED) was paid to families in need in February to meet their children's school expenses and other needs.
Stating that the Ministry of Family and Social Services provides many social services, Minister Yanık stated that SED is also a service model for supporting children.
Emphasizing that SED, which is a family-oriented practice, aims to prevent children from growing up away from their families for economic reasons, Minister Yanık said:
“This month, we are paying a total of 236 million TL Social and Economic Support for the children of our families in need. SED is paid to families to meet their children's school expenses and other needs. With our SED service, we aim to support our families in need and protect family integrity. By preventing family members from separating from each other for economic reasons, we offer both material and moral support for the healthy growth of our children. By organizing many activities for our children who benefit from the SED payment, we provide an environment for their social and cultural development as well as financial support.”
Stating that 144 thousand children benefit from the SED service, Minister Yanık reminded that the average amount paid for each child was increased from 1259 lira to 1611 lira last month.
