Noting the positive dynamics, Leader of the Nation has stressed the need for the Fund’s active participation in carrying out social projects aimed at improving the welfare of Kazakhstanis.
The First President of Kazakhstan focused on the issue of supporting children with disabilities as part of Kamkorlyk initiative.
- The government, local councils, non-governmental organizations and the business community are doing a lot of work to support children with special needs. However, currently functioning rehabilitation centres do not satisfy the real demand for them. Therefore, it is necessary to intensify work in this direction, said Nursultan Nazarbayev.
The Leader of Nation has stressed the need to create diversified regional rehabilitation centres based on existing infrastructure, as well as the organization of additional resource inclusion support centres for inclusion in secondary schools.
- Samruk-Kazyna is always actively involved in supporting charity projects. Therefore, I believe that the Holding could take part in carrying out this initiative, said Nursultan Nazarbayev.
In addition, the Fund was instructed to launch educational projects on supporting and developing talented children from low-income families in remote regions of the country.
Also, the Leader of Nation noted the importance of implementing projects in the field of medicine directed to improving the material base of medical centres and increasing the personnel potential of the industry.
