WATER FOR RANKOVCE
In 2014, we drilled a well and built a water tank for approximately 40 households. Before that, more than 300 inhabitants of this settlement used the only public source of drinking water – a well on the edge of the settlement, which is 400 meters away from the construction site. All the new houses built within the Building Hope project will be connected to the new water source. By the end of 2014, four family homes constructed in the first Project phase were connected to the source.
A WOOD-BURNING STOVE AND WOOD STORAGE FOR THE COMMUNITY CENTRE IN RANKOVCE
The Community Centre in Rankovce is based in the premises rented from the Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession. In early 2014 the Humanitarian Program of LDS provided financial resources for the purchase of a wood-burning stove for the room in which the Pre-School preparation classes take place. Thanks to the LDS Church support, we were also able to build a small wood storage.
NEW COMMUNITY CENTRE IN VEĽKÁ IDA
Following an agreement with Veľká Ida Municipality, we commenced the reconstruction of the former fire station into a new Community Centre. The Construction Coordinator was helped by local men throughout the building process. The men dug the sewer trenches, covered the walls with gypsum board, repaired the roof, built a chimney, installed a solid fuel boiler, built the lavatory, and installed flooring, window ledges and interior doors and door frames. They did the complete wiring and water supply for the building and equipped the office and the kitchen with furniture. They also installed radiators, which were a gift from U.S. Steel Košice. The Community Centre was opened in February 2015.
RECONSTRUCTION OF THE COMMUNITY CENTRE IN STARÁ ĽUBOVŇA
Since May 2015, the Community Centre in Stará Ľubovňa – Podsadek has had a new reconstructed room for the purpose of its education and extra-curricular activities. The classroom is going to be used especially by children attending the School Club and the Pre-School Preparation. The reconstruction was financially supported by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the equipment was purchased from the funds provided by the Swiss Financial Mechanism and the Velux Foundation.
