Over 450 thousand children in Belarus, i.e. almost every fourth child, is provided with state support. The data have been made public on the eve of the International day of families, which is marked on May,15. One of the most notable state support programs is the “Family capital”. The project has been implemented in Belarus since 2015. Due to the measures taken, ever more young parents determine upon giving birth to three and more children. Over the five years, the number of such families has grown by 40%.
