Ukraine receives $232 million from World Bank for emergency housing repairs
The World Bank has allocated USD 232 million to Ukraine as part of the Housing Repair for People's Empowerment project: over 100,000 Ukrainian families will be able to rebuild their houses destroyed by Russian aggression
This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Reintegration.
"The funding will make it possible to carry out repairs, such as replacing windows or repairing roofs. In total, the project plans to repair about 98,000 houses and 8,000 apartments in five regions," the statement says.
According to the World Bank, Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine has damaged about 1.4 million houses. The total cost of the damage is estimated at more than USD 50 billion.
"The project is designed to help restore about two-thirds of the damaged houses in our country that are considered suitable for repair," the Ministry of Reintegration added.
Ukraine has allocated over UAH 3 billion from the state budget to rebuild medical facilities destroyed and damaged by Russia. As of August 22, 358 facilities have been fully restored and 426 have been partially restored.
