The Bulgarian ministers have decided to take BGN 200 of their salaries and spend them on presents for children from three orphanages in Sofia.

Bulgaria’s PM Boyko Borisov and the ministers will collect a total of BGN 3,600 and will give them to children in the orphanages in the Sofia districts Dragalevtsi and Nadezhda, and to the orphanage for babies “St. Ivan Rilski.”

At the meeting on Tuesday, the government decided to close the home for medical and social care in the Bulgarian town of Teteven, which has hosted a total of 38 children below 3 years of age, 28 of which in good health, since the beginning of 2010.

Ten children have been reintegrated into their biological families, 24 have been adopted and one has been placed in a foster family. The last three children will be taken out of the orphanage by the end of the year.

One of Bulgaria's national strategies is to keep abandoned children out of orphanages by 2020.
