35.000 euros for poor and starving pupils of Heraklion
Municipality of Heraklion reformed its budget in order to help 441 poor and starving pupils of Kindergartens and Elementary Schools.
As decided by the Economic Commission, there will be an extra amount of 35,000 euros for buying breakfast to pupils at Kindergartens and Elementary Schools who cannot buy anything due to the economic crisis.
In the next few days, there will be an appointment with the contractor who will discreetly provide breakfast to children.
Municipality of Heraklion, in collaboration with the Directorate of Secondary Level Education, has also started to record high school students who face a similar problem.
There will also be an extra amount in the 2015 budget for the same purpose, in high schools.
