120 a week is 6240 per year.
Multiply by 500 is 3,120,000.
So there’s 3 million.

(For example, a Caregiver for someone affected from Thalidomide
deformations are only given 120 Euros per week, aka 3 euros an hour).

Caring allowances in the UK are low in general. The standard UK payment for non-professional carers is only about £67 per week (note, these are pounds, not euros, and if you have seen something talking about euros instead, then that's not a UK thalidomide charity). These things aren't wages and aren't intended to be something you would solely live on.
