Yesterday, on 24 may 2016, an official opening of the refurbished accommodation center for IDPs took place in Sofiyivka settlement, Dnipropetrovsk region. The major repair of the building, including window replacement, roof repair and finishing works has been done with support of the joint UNDP/EU project “Community based approach to local development”(CBA).

The accommodation center can host 70 persons. Four IDP families have already moved in. It is the fifth object repaired in partnership of the local authorities with UNDP. The repair costs amounted to 1,5 mln Hryvnias.

Present at the opening were Hlib Pryhunov, Head of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast Council, CBA project coordinator in  Dnipropetrovsk region, representatives of NGOs who were involved in the implementation of this initiative, and IDP families.


Commenting on the opening of the object, Serhiy Kondratenko, representative of the local charity organization, said: “We successfully spent the grant allocated by UNDP, in order that the IDPs have roof over their head. Because, what really matters for each person? To have a place to live. Now people have such place thanks to the project”.

Olena Onipko, an IDP from Horlivka, is happy to have accommodation of her own: “We are truly glad that our problem was not forgotten, that such project was implemented for IDPs, for those who need accommodation.
