“I am pleased that in this place created to care for homeless children and adolescents, they are no longer treated as objects but as subjects of law,” said the president in an act held in the Mar del Plata region.

The dignitary affirmed that the Government will pay the total value of the AUH or AUH with Disability benefit monthly to those who have the current Single Certificate of Disability (CUD), with the purpose of guaranteeing this vulnerable sector of society social security benefits and promote a more equitable and just society.
