During the pandemic, up to 7 million families received social assistance in Turkey

Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, up to seven million families in Turkey have received social assistance totaling 10.6 billion Turkish lira (about $ 1.24 billion).

The Turkish Ministry of Family Affairs and Social Services provided Anadolu with statistics on programs to support the population in the period from April 2020 to July 2021.

According to the ministry, the elderly and citizens with disabilities were paid 1,000 Turkish lira per family every month. This social program has been used by millions of families across the country.

In addition, more than 2 billion Turkish liras in aid have been collected and distributed as part of the Turkey Self-Sufficient Campaign initiated by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

During the period of large-scale severe restrictions (from April 29 to May 17, 2021), another 2.2 billion Turkish lira was allocated to citizens in social assistance.

At the same time, 2 million families were identified as temporarily facing economic problems due to the pandemic. Each of these families was paid a lump sum of 1,100 Turkish lira – a total of 2.2 billion lira.

Social payments in 2020 were also made for certain categories of the population, in particular, women whose spouse died (107 thousand people – 341 million Turkish lira). Also, 75 thousand families of military personnel received assistance in the amount of 125 million Turkish lira.

At the same time, in 2020 alone, 2.6 million students in Turkey received aid from the state in the amount of 730 million Turkish lira.
