KYIV. Nov 23 (Interfax-Ukraine) – A modular town for 112 IDP families, constructed due to the efforts of the Ukrainian Red Cross, was opened in Chernihiv, the Ukrainian Red Cross Society (URCS) press service said.

"Today in Chernihiv the official opening of a modular town for internally displaced persons took place. We are talking about seven multi-apartment two-story buildings with 112 apartments. The apartments are fully equipped with both household appliances and furniture for a comfortable stay," the society said in a statement on Wednesday.

"This project was one of the first in the direction of restoration from the Ukrainian Red Cross. And we are pleased that we managed to do it before winter and cold weather. I would like to thank the city authorities, and, of course, our partners – the British and Austrian Red Cross, who also made efforts to this construction became possible. I hope those who will live in this town will feel the care and love with which we built this town," Director General of the National Committee of the Ukrainian Red Cross Society Maksym Dotsenko said.

Reportedly, URCS raised almost UAH 157 million for the construction of a modular town. In addition, two 100 kW generators have also been provided in case of emergency shutdowns.

"On behalf of Chernihiv community, I want to thank the Ukrainian Red Cross and its units, which joined in the construction of the town in which live people who lost their own homes as a result of the barbaric aggression of Russia. The fact that the world supports us and finances such projects shows that we are not alone in this struggle for democracy, freedom, independence," acting mayor Oleksandr Lomako said.
