The reconstruction project will be carried out by the UNDP in Ukraine. The total amount of the funds contributed under the agreement is 2 million euros, according to a Foreign Ministry release.
The agreement provides for the overhaul, restoration or reconstruction of five social infrastructure facilities: the food block of the Chernihiv Regional Children’s Hospital; the pre-school No 19 of the Chernihiv City; the facade of the Kiyin pre-school “Malyatko”; Staryi Bilous Lyceum of the Novyi Bilous Village Council; and insulation of the facade of Talalaivka Lyceum in the Talalaivka Village Council.
“Our contribution is a testimony of our unwavering commitment to support the Ukrainian people and aid in the reconstruction of vital infrastructure. Through the combined efforts of UNDP, the Republic of Latvia, and local authorities, the project promises to play a pivotal role in the region's recovery and revitalization, providing stability through solidarity with the communities of Chernihiv,“ said Ambassador Ilgvars Kļava.
The buildings to be restored were determined by the Chernihiv Oblast Administration, following the assessment of the region’s urgent needs. The reconstruction works will be carried out in accordance with EU standards, which is particularly important in view of Ukraine’s European integration process.
As part of his regional visit, Ambassador Ilgvars Kļava also saw the Women’s Support Centre in Chernihiv, the establishment of which was supported by Latvia, and he met with the Governor of the Chernihiv Oblast, Viacheslav Chaus.
