The families, who currently receive the BDH, with children under 5 years of age, will receive the following additional values: US $ 30 for the first child; US $ 27 for the second and US $ 24.30 for the third child. The households that are BDH users, with children between 5 and 18 years old, will receive: US $ 10 for the first child; US $ 9 for the second and US $ 8.10 for the third child.
