A fund “To the People of Kazakhstan” will be created in Kazakhstan
Kassym-Jomart Tokayev at a meeting of the Mazhilis of the Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan instructed to create a fund for the People of Kazakhstan, ATPress.kz reports, with reference to Zakon.kz.
“We have a National Fund. This is the financial support of our country. Today I am instructing to create a public social fund “To the People of Kazakhstan”. It will deal with real problems in the field of health care, education, social support. For example, helping children with rare diseases. For most families, the costs of treatment are simply unaffordable. We will build sports facilities for children in cities, districts, townships, villages. We will render assistance to talented children. We will support culture. We will help Almaty recover from the terrible tragedy. From this fund we will support the families of the killed police officers and military personnel. And these are just some examples” - noted Kassym-Jomart Tokayev.
The head of state stressed that this is not a fund of the president, government or some other state body.
“This is a fund of all Kazakhstanis. This is a people's fund. It will not be created under the administration or government. A separate authoritative supervisory board will be created. An honest responsible leader has been appointed. We will ensure full transparency of its activities, accountability and control of the society. Plans, budget, projects will be published on the site. All information will be open” - said the President.
The President said that the fund will be financed from private and public sources.
“It is planned to attract assistance from international charitable organizations. The fund will receive mandatory contributions from the operator of lottery activities, the betting center and other monopolists. Of course, we expect regular significant contributions. I emphasize: regular contributions to the fund from big business,” Tokayev concluded.
