The premises of the children day care center are very old, the ventilation is poor, the premises have mold, sewerage and plumbing system not often working, so the social center is in need of serious repair.
After making necessary repairs (floor replacement, repainting of walls and ceilings, new lighting, sanitary facilities, etc.), cleaner and better-equipped rooms will bring joy to children, spending time in a beautiful environment every day, and allow the staff of the center to work in better conditions. We try to create more family-friendly environment to make it more fun and enjoyable for children at the children day care center.
We kindly invite you to contribute for the renewal of our facilities to create a place where children want to be!
