September 23 is the deadline for applications under the “Hot lunch” program of the Social Assistance Agency, in which the Municipality of G. Oryahovitsa also participates. Persons in need of support can submit applications to the local administration.
The admission started already in April, and so far there are over 250 applicants to use the social service. In addition to people with low incomes and homeless persons and refugees, they can join it.
People with low incomes, elderly people, pensioners and people living alone who cannot support themselves and have no support from relatives and friends have the right to a hot lunch. Persons on social assistance, people with low incomes who, due to existing disabilities or health limitations, have difficulty or impossible self-care are also entitled to assistance, including single persons with permanent disabilities with low personal income from a pension, for whom there is no suitable candidate for personal assistance mechanism assistant.
The service can also be used by persons who, due to accidental circumstances, are in a difficult and vulnerable situation and for whom a need for this type of assistance has been established. The lists of candidates are checked by employees of the Social Assistance Directorate, and specified by the local administration.
