Bulgaria Cuts Monthly Payment of BGN 65 to Refugees
Bulgaria is cutting the monthly payment of BGN 65 to refugees.
According to reports of private TV station bTV, the measure is explained with the fact that refugees are already provided with three meals a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner) instead of two (lunch and dinner), as was the case earlier.
Bulgaria is obliged to provide food and shelter to people seeking protection in the country, according to the report.
The TV station reminds that meals are cooked at refugee centers as of 2014.
According to Nikola Kazakov, Chair of the State Agency for Refugees, refugees are granted protection equaling the guaranteed social minimum for Bulgarian nationals. The guaranteed minimum income in Bulgaria stands at BGN 65.
Refugees in Bulgaria are worried that they will no longer have pocket money, especially in the case of falling ill.
Although refugees have the rights of medically insured people in Bulgaria, most pharmaceuticals require supplementary payment apart from the reimbursement by the National Health Insurance Fund.
Bulgaria’s State Agency for Refugees claims that no refugees have been denied medical services.
According to Kazakov, as cited by the Bulgarian National Radio, some 10 000 people will be granted refugee/humanitarian status by end-2015.

Giving them 3 meals?? what about integration? language schools, psychological treatment? eventually they will stay in BG and they can improve the situation here, they will create new businesses and their kids will be Bulgarians. What happened to the country who was the only one who saved all jew's lives in the WW2? Germany and Sweden can not do it better then the Bulgarians. all is needed is a good plan and good will. who ever is up for the fast money, will anyhow try to leave, but if there are people who wants to integrate, to find a job, to learn the language and the culture-they should be provided with suitable help!
Bukgaria in Europe
Just give us money
Only people with money or pensions would bother to think about living in bulgaria
You would have to be desperate to consider living ib bg These people are desperate and should be helped and treated with respect just like we would like to be treated if we were in there situation
Some people on this site think they own the world and maybe sould look at how lucky there life has been
Dont forget we are all going the same way one day
1. Many of them are not even Syrians, they are from Afghanistan or Africa, therefore not entitled to be called "refugees". They are illegal immigrants.
2. They are Gyspies
3. They are Muslim
4. Finish that fence building once and for all. Greece has managed to build one years ago
Most of them came from Turkey, so let them go back there. Bulgaria is not in no position to handle refugee crisis from country much bigger than them. We are not responsible for all problems in the world. Let us fix our severe internal problems first. If these illegal migrants not happy, go back to Turkey. Gate is open other direction as well.
Since these spongers are probably hoping to end up living in the UK's Benefits Street, shouldn't they start their acclimatisation early and serve them "dinner" at lunch-time and "tea" at dinner-time? ;) That way they will feel at home among the illiterate British welfare-fiddlers....
