500 Ukrainian children already being processed for schooling in Andalucia.
The processing of schooling for 500 Ukrainian children who arrived in the community as refugees from the war caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine has already been started by the Junta de Andalucia.
According to the data offered by Juanma Moreno, the President of the Andalucian Government, specifically, 158 children have been enrolled in school and the materialisation of another 346 applications is pending.
As Mr Moreno highlighted, the ‘Andalusia with Ukraine’ scheme “is a demonstration of the Andalucian heart, and our solidarity idiosyncrasy. We guarantee that the Ukrainians who arrive enjoy all the rights that European citizenship offers them in Spain”. He added that refugees arriving in the region are guaranteed “assistance in Andalucian public health, including vaccination”.
These young Ukrainians will also each receive a free transport card with an initial balance of €50, to be used for free travel in the nine metropolitan transport consortiums of the community.
The President of the Andalucian Government maintained that “we cannot forget the Ukrainian population”. He pointed out that “the Russian Federation has entered a Western European country with blood and fire”.
In relation to the solidarity aid contemplated in the ‘Andalucia with Ukraine’ plan, Juanma Moreno stressed that Andalucia is acting with “the utmost loyalty to the Government of Spain”, as reported by laopiniondemalaga.es.
