A total of 17 families displaced by the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine have received the keys to their new homes in Kramatorsk.
The project, which involved the conversion of an old school building into an apartment block, was carried out under the Ukraine Early Recovery Programme, funded by the European Investment Bank and implemented by the UNDP.
The building was insulated, extensively re-planned into apartments equipped with toilets and bathrooms, furniture, living and dining rooms. A recreation area and a children’s playground have been set up on the adjacent territory.
The total cost of the project was around €1 million.
“The issue of housing remains one of the most pressing for IDPs. In Kramatorsk, we have already repaired three dormitories. Under the programme of the European Investment Bank, we plan to complete the renovation of ten more such buildings for a total of 1,000 people,” saidPavlo Kyrylenko, Donetsk Oblast Governor.
