Kryvyi Rih continues effective cooperation with international partners to attract European grants for the development of the city.

After being overhauled, a dormitory in Inhuletskyi district on vul. Katkova, 25, warmly welcomed new residents - families from Eastern Ukraine. Housing for IDPs was renovated in cooperation of the city with the Ukrainian Social Investment Fund (UFSI), with the support of the German Development Bank KfW.

Mayor Kostyantyn Pavlov congratulated the new Kryvyi Rih residents on their new home and handed over warrants and keys to 17 apartments.

"Kryvyi Rih is a hospitable city not in words, but in deeds. When people from the eastern regions of Ukraine were affected, we started providing them with all possible assistance from the first days. This work has not stopped for a day and continues today. "Holiday" may sound like an exaggeration, but how else can you describe the feelings of our residents receiving keys to comfortable housing? We have taken another step, fulfilling their desire to have decent and comfortable living conditions", said Mayor Kostyantyn Pavlov.

All non-residential premises for social housing for internally displaced persons on the 1st floor of the dormitory have been replanned and overhauled. Two of the 17 apartments are specially equipped for people with limited mobility. The new homes have plumbing, showers, kitchen furniture and accessories, washing machines. The entrance to the building is equipped with a ramp.

"We are grateful to the city for the warm welcome and hospitality. I have been living in Kryvyi Rih with my sick mother and three children since 2014. Yes, it was not easy to move from Makiivka and start a new life in Kryvyi Rih. We became stronger, both morally and physically, we have been hardened by the war. Thanks to the support and help of all concerned people, we will live in a wonderful, new home. My sons will get their own rooms, I will find a job and we will live on, said Yulia, mother of three children.

Mayor Kostyantyn Pavlov thanked the partners from the Ukrainian Social Investment Fund and public organization "Egida-Center", who showed humanism and active life position, and help people.

"I want to note that the UFSI has more than one investment project in our city. It is also planned to carry out repairs at the kindergarten No. 255, located near the dormitory, on vul. Katkova, 53. I am sure that the implementation of this project will allow 120 children of the Inhulets residential area to receive preschool education in more comfortable conditions. Also, within the framework of the Memorandum of Cooperation between the Fund and the city, the implementation of projects to improve the conditions of primary health care in 2 outpatient clinics of Primary health care centers No. 5 an No. 7 in Dovhyntsivskyi and Inhuletskyi city distritcs started in 2020. This will allow to improve the service for about 30 thousand Kryvyi Rih residents. I hope that all plans will be carried out", stressed Kostyantyn Pavlov.
