The orphanage in Pokrovsk was built in 1944 and required repairs and improvements to its energy efficiency. In April 2017, the UNDP, with financial support from the government of Japan, started renovation work. Now that the works are completed, the centre can house up to 40 children.
The United Nations Development Programme in Ukraine and the government of Japan have repaired a building to house an outpatient clinic that is to serve the population of the frontline town of Toretsk in Donetsk Oblast.
100 youth from across Ukraine participated in U-Inn camp where they showed innovative solutions to solving local community issues, and promoting participation and human rights. They also took part in training in project management, project implementation, and worked with experts to help them develop their ideas.
