For the last 20 years, the building has not been used for its intended purpose,’ - said Andriy Laktionov, Executive Director of the Ukrainian Social Investment Fund. ‘In the framework of abovementioned USIF V Project, we came to settlements and communities that were in real need of investments into the social sphere and social development.
