The President of the Republic Pedro Castillo on Friday affirmed that the Peruvian State has a great responsibility towards the country's children, being this greater to those who are orphans.

During his visit to San Miguel Arcangel shelter run by the State-run National Family Welfare Program (INABIF), the Head of State indicated that his administration does everything necessary so that children's dreams regarding their future "are not stalled."

"The State has a great responsibility towards the children of this country, but the State's responsibility is greater, much greater, when it comes to children like you," he expressed.

Likewise, the top official indicated that his administration will do everything possible to provide the corresponding budget and there can be more shelters for children, youth, and the elderly.

Moreover, the President expressed confidence that Congress will approve regulations, in conjunction with the Executive Branch, to achieve the orphan's pension, "so that you can have a pension and do not lack anything ahead."

The Head of State also told children who participated in this ceremony that it is necessary to get to know the country, so that "you can see that there are people like you in other parts (of the national territory)."

"I wish you all had a Merry Christmas and that this New Year is not only new in name, but that there is the possibility of finding us in ourselves so that the challenges, as children and young persons, can be faced looking forward," Mr. Castillo said.

"Instead of being sad, we must be happy; instead of being alone, we must stand united," he added.
