This year, the republican festival “Let's join hands, friends!” will be held in video format
From December 1 to 10, Kazan, like the rest of the world,
will host the traditional Decade of disabled people. This year, due to the
sanitary and epidemiological situation, cultural and entertainment events will
be held online. This was announced today at the Business Monday at the
Executive Committee of Kazan by the head of the Department of culture Azat
“The transfer of cultural events into online format is
fully reasonable – it is not worth risking today, gathering large audiences“, -
said Ilsur Metshin, the Mayor of Kazan.
Different cultural, entertainment and sports events
for people of all ages will be staged in the city, Azat Abzalov said. Children
and young people will be invited to read books at the book club, participate in
online intellectual quiz, and an intellectual tournament “What? Where? When?” – musical evenings, and other events.
The traditional republican creativity festival of
people with disabilities “Let's join hands, friends!” will be held in video
In November, the Russian festival of children's
creative work “The Good Wave” kicks-off. The qualifying rounds will be held in online
During the decade of disabled people, social
assistance for people in need will also be provided. “Health care institutions
organize examination of immobile disabled people at home with laboratory and
functional research methods”, - Azat Abzalov said.
For single disabled people who are on home-based
social services, there are 994 such people in Kazan, at the request of a social
worker, assistance in cleaning apartments will be provided.
Ilsur Metshin emphasized that social assistance is the
prerogative of the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection, but the city also
tries to help people in need. “In 2018, we received a request to provide
property tax benefits to families with disabled children. Kazan City Duma deputies
accepted the decision. We have responded to the request of people. Then this
initiative was taken up by other cities”, - he said.
Every year, the city budget provides financial
assistance to families with disabled children. This year, 270 Kazan families
will receive a lump sum allowance for more than 1 million rubles.
