Green Cross: successful completion of the first project in Nevgody.

Pilot project Smart Water for Green Schools (SWGS) is finished in Nevgody. It lasted seven months, from January to July this year. This time was enough for its logical end, because everything was done fast, qualitatively and efficiently. The Nevgody villagers and local school children have really felt the benefits of the project in practice.

It is difficult to overestimate the importance of the project, which lies even in its title, because clear water guaranties health of the nation, which all our people require to preserve living in the contaminated Chernobyl zone. So now the inhabitants and Nevgody village council gratefully enjoy quality water, since the water treatment facilities and the water tower was reconstructed, water is supplied to individual houses of the villagers, repairs was made in all water supply system, new room was build in the local school in Nevgody, where new dry ecological toilets were installed and two adjacent rooms renovated. Also medical examination of all pupils was conducted and those who needed medical care were treated.

To my mind, the advantage of the project is that it is primarily aimed at maintaining the health of the younger generation. First and foremost we have to take care of our children, because they are the future of our country.

Thanks to SOCMED program (Maria Vitagliano, International Programs Director), now children from Nevgody are rehabilitated in the Transcarpathian region. Fresh healthy air, acquaintances with new people and making friends, as well as attention and caring of adults surely will benefit them. There might be no good deed, if not international organization Green Cross International (GCI) and Green Cross Ukraine (GCU) and all the sponsors and donors involved in this project. We are sincerely grateful to them. Personal thanks to Alexander Likhotal, President of Green Cross International (GCI), Marie-Laure Vercambre, Director of Water for Life and Peace programme, Adam Koniuszewski, Chief Operating Officer, Yana Nazarova, GCI Project Assistant and Coordinator and the whole team of Green Cross Ukraine in the person of Yuriy Sapiga, GCU Chairman of the Board.

Let us hope that Nevgody is a successful launch of the Smart Water for Green Schools in Ovruch district. We reckon that the project will be implemented also in other areas of the district, including villages Pershotravneve, Biguni, Levkovychi and Sholomky. We shall be grateful for significant and confident steps in our contaminated Polissya region to the organizers and friends of the project, who make noble and right things for people.

Vasiliy Nalapiy, Head of Ovruch District Council
