Kanash City's Women's Council held a conference devoted to the problem of fathers' who work outside of the state reuniting with their families.
It was announced at the forum that 26% of men work outside of the republic according to recent statistics. It was stressed that children grow up without seeing their fathers for months and months.
The fact that a Father Advisory Body aiming to strengthen family ties and increase father's role in children's upbringing was created in Kanash was also mentioned.
A spouse's working outside of the republic is one of the reasons for divorce - which, by the way, Chuvashia is notorious for, with 80% of all marriages dissolving in court - number one figure in the Volga region.
It should also be mentioned that Chuvashia's Employment Office sent 150 Chuvash citizens outside of the republic for work opportunities.
