Help to low-income family

04 May 2017

In a difficult life situation, a person first of all thinks about the well-being of his relatives.

I received a letter from citizen Z. At the time of filing a complaint, he was detained in pre-trial detention center No.11 in Moscow Region.

According to the man, his wife R. and children were in a difficult life situation. After Z.'s imprisonment, R. remained alone with two children and could not find a job. In connection with the arrears for electricity, the bailiff’s office seized the bank card of the applicant’s wife.

Given that the payment of the child benefit was paid to the card, the rights of minors to a decent standard of living, ensuring their healthy development, were violated. The grant was the only source of income for Z. family.

In the interest of protecting children, I sent motivated appeals to the Pavlovo-Posadsky city prosecutor’s office and to the prosecutor’s office of Moscow Region.

However, according to the replies received, there were no executive proceedings to recover debts from the family for electricity at the time of application.

At the same time, the administration of Elektrogorsk assisted the family as one in a difficult life situation. Within the framework of social support, material assistance was provided, assistance in providing the youngest child with a place in the kindergarten and employment for the senior son during summer.

Anyone can find himself in a difficult life situation, "no fence against a flail", says the popular wisdom. But it is very important to support the families of those who, for certain reasons, can not take care of their loved ones.

The main task of the High Commissioner is to restore justice, especially in relation to those who have no one else to rely on.
