A solemn opening of the apartment building for internally displaced persons was held on June 26, in Pavlohrad (Dnipropetrovsk region). Due to effective implementation by the Ukrainian Social Investment Fund of USIF V Project, funded by the German Government through KfW Development Bank, 42 internally displaced persons were provided with housing in 19 fully-equipped apartments (14 one-room, 4 two-room and 1 three-room). In order to create social housing, major repairs were carried out in a two-storeyed building on Lyvarna 18, street. In the past, this building had served as a dormitory for «Litmash» plant workers.
