The Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki pointed out that it is important for the information on the extended formula of the programme to reach every Polish family, so that they could benefit form it. It is a socio-demographic scheme. We are glad that we can somehow contribute to the happiness of Polish families he said.

These PLN 6,000 a year are a support for various needs, such as the purchase of clothes or tickets to the cinema for the whole family. For some, these are small, insignificant matters, but I am convinced that for millions of Polish families these are fundamental issues said the Head of Government. As he added, around 3 millions of children in Poland have not received the support from 500+ programme until now. We want to provide this support from the state to every child without any exception. It is the best investment in the future of our nation highlighted the Prime Minister.
