Head of Government of Georgia instructed Ministries of Health and Finance accordingly.

"Initiative applies to over 75 000 individuals and we need to take their needs into consideration. Ministries of Health and Finance are instructed to identify resources from within the State Budget of the next year" stated the Prime Minister of Georgia.

From January 1, 2019 social security package of Group II Disabled People will be increased by 20 GEL and will be getting 120 GEL a month, instead of 100 GEL.

Along with other topics, meeting was also focused on the financial support provided through the Community Service Programs for people with disabilities.
