Censor.NET reports citing the statement by the press service of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional State Administration.
Five houses for IDPs, four schools and a kindergarten will be refurbished in the region. In particular, old buildings that have long been out of use and can be reconstructed into housing for displaced persons have been chosen in the towns of Pavlohrad, Kamianske, Verkhniodniprovsk, Vilnohirsk, and the village of Chumaky.
"These are ruined community facilities that have not been used for nearly 20 years. The local authorities lacked funds for their repair. These buildings will be redesigned into social dormitories for displaced persons, while the community will retain ownership of the premises," project consultant Hanna Aladzhalian said.
The project proponents believe that communities of the towns and villages will be able to use the renovated premises at their discretion once again after the end of the conflict in eastern Ukraine.
Vilnohirsk authorities are the first ones who have already drafted construction documents. They still have to agree the documents with the German government. A part of the kindergarten that has not been operating for more than 20 years will be rebuilt into a social dormitory for IDPs there.
The project will allow rehousing around 500 displaced persons in the Dnipro region. The funds for the creation of housing for IDPs are allocated by the German government through KfW Development Bank.
Official figures show that the region currently hosts over 80,000 displaced persons from the Donbas and occupied Crimea.
