LWF renovates schools in Chernihiv region
(LWI) - Schools in Ukraine cannot open unless they have a bomb shelter. This is now a government regulation in the country, seven months after the Russian invasion. The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) is working with local municipalities to make schools safe for students to return to in-person tuition after months of interruption.
The Chernihiv region, between the capital Kyiv and the Russian border, was under occupation for three months. Upon their retreat, the invading troops destroyed private homes and public infrastructure. An LWF team visited the region in mid-September to start necessary renovation work which had been planned during the summer.
