What is Child Welfare and Social Security?
Child’s welfare is absolutely dependent on other people: parents, grandparents, guardians… In modern society there are many families in which the child’s best interests are ignored, the child is being damaged psychologically and even physically. But children are entitled to a comfortable life, moral and physical education, schooling and sports. They must be given the opportunity to play, learn and freely explore the world. When those responsible for the child are unable to respond to the needs of the child, social workers come to the rescue. These specialists are prepared to be able to understand the child and give him/her every opportunity to experience life in a safe, quiet manner and to ensure a comfortable childhood before becoming an adult member of society.
