Mateusz Morawiecki, the Polish prime minister, has praised the 500+ child benefit programme, saying that it has helped “protect the weakest”.

A cornerstone of the government’s social policy, to date the programme has distributed over PLN 178 billion (EUR 38.3 bln) to Polish families. Under 500+, parents get PLN 500 a month for each child under 18.

In a Facebook post Morawiecki wrote that “a strong family is a strong Poland”.

“In 2016, we started a revolution of dignity, which is best illustrated by our flagship programme, Family 500+. As part of it, over PLN 178 billion has already been allocated to Poles,” wrote the head of government.

He emphasised that the Polish family was positioned at the centre of the social policy of the governing Law and Justice party. “We consistently support it with further initiatives and projects,” said Morawiecki.

“Despite the turmoil in the world beyond our control, you can be sure that we will always protect the weakest and care for the security and prosperous future of our country,” added the prime minister.
