On Wednesday 20 March 2019, the official opening of the rehabilitated Druzhkivka police department in Donetsk Oblast will take place. With financial support from the Government of the Netherlands, the building has undergone a major refurbishment of the entrance group and the waiting area in accordance with the principles of Universal Design, to make it more accessible for various categories of people, including persons with children and persons with disabilities.

The front office of the police department is now equipped with a ramp, has reconstructed heating, ventilation and sewage systems, has LED lamps installed, and is equipped with new furniture and other equipment. The rehabilitation was carried out within the framework of the United Nations Recovery and Peacebuilding Programme.

Background information:

The Recovery and Peacebuilding Programme (RPP) addresses priority needs in eastern Ukraine after armed conflict erupted in spring 2014. The Programme aims to strengthen community security and social cohesion, support the economic recovery of conflict-affected communities, and further decentralization and healthcare reforms in government-controlled areas of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts.

RPP is being implemented by four United Nations agencies: UNDP, UN Women, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

The Programme is supported by nine international partners: the European Union, the European Investment Bank and the governments of Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland and Japan. Its total budget for 2019-2022 is over US$50 million.
