In Sumy area, several residential care homes will be renovated.

Almost all residential care homes in the northern regions of Sumy region are planned to be repaired this year. In particular, 1.5 million UAH from the regional budget was allocated for the Budishchansky psycho-neurological residential institution in Hlukhiv area, where 140 residents live permanently. According to Tetyana Savenko, the director of the institution, in March they, as managers of funds, are already planning to announce a tender in order to select a contractor for the restoration of the dining room. The building is already about three hundred years old, it is a monument of architecture of local significance, the former Uspenskaya canteen of the Peter and Paul monastery. A lot of time was spent on various permits and approvals, but they already have all the documents.

– If inside the dining room they made visible repairs every year, then outwardly everything is very poor. There were fires here twice, so the quickly repaired roof leaks, one wall cracked. According to the design and budget documentation, 2.2 million UAH is needed. One and a half million have already been allocated to us, for which we are very grateful, says T. Savenko.

Other residential care homes that are communal institutions of the Sumy Regional Council were not remained helpless. Thus, Krolevetsky care homel for the elderly and disabled received 350 thousand UAH to replace windows. Svesy Neuropsychiatric Residential Institution is preparing to begin the repair of the residential building for 1.2 million UAH. 120 thousand UAH were allocated to Shalyginsky special care home and Putivl boarding school of I-II degrees (for the purchase of a new boiler and repair of the floor in the lobby).

– Last year, we together with the deputies of the regional council visited all the residential care institutions and discussed problems with the administrations. Heads of the RSA and the regional council viewed with understanding our proposals. The deputies voted in favor of the initiative. I am sure that repairs in such important social institutions will improve the life of elder people, the sick and children,” comments MP Andrii Derkach
