Without “baby packaging”: families with newborns will be relieved of support from the state
The Ministry of Social Policy has been blocking tenders for the purchase of “baby packaging” for almost 3 months, which parents receive at the birth of a child. Instead, they offer “monetary compensation” that does not cover even half of the retail value of things in the “package”.
This was announced by businessman Alexander Sokolovsky.
Why You Should Keep Your Baby Packs
The minimum price of items that are in the “baby package” at retail is from 15 to 20 thousand hryvnia. Minsots offers parents to receive 6,800 hryvnias. Although, according to a UNICEF survey, 80 – 90% of parents would prefer “packaging”. It has everything you need for mom and newborn. Now parents are deprived of the right to choose. We hope the situation will be resolved,” the entrepreneur writes.
Sokolovsky is convinced that in a country where both the birth rate and the standard of living decline during the war, the support of young parents is critical. In addition, the purchase of at least 50,000 “baby packs” will provide jobs for 2,000 Ukrainians. Because the lion's share of the package is produced in Ukraine.
Reference. “Baby's Pack” is an essential item for mother and child, which should simplify the life of new parents and reduce their costs. It includes diapers, napkins, diapers, clothes, hygiene items and products, a rug, a comb, scissors, a mattress, toys, etc.
Possibility to receive “packing” is provided by the current legislation. According to Ukrainska Pravda, 80% of the contents of the “baby's package” are made in Ukraine. Ukrainians produce textiles, cosmetics, educational toys, rugs and a box that can be used as a tube.
