The charitable organization has installed a reverse osmosis system in the bomb shelter of the therapeutic department of the central hospital in Novovorontsovka, Kherson Region, to provide potable water for patients, hospital staff and people in the surrounding streets. On November 1st, ADRA Ukraine’s technical specialist inspected the equipment and signed the contractor’s certificate of completion. The equipment was installed with the support of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as part of the project to respond to the destruction of the Kakhovka hydroelectric dam.
As a result of the explosion of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant in June of this year, the water supply system stopped functioning normally in many settlements located on the right bank of the Dnipro River. The quality of water has deteriorated to the extent that it no longer meets the potable water standards. The same problem arose in the village of Novovorontsovka. Oleh Didenko, the director of the central hospital in the village, asked ADRA Ukraine to assist with solving the potable water problem. Back then, the hospital had 85 inpatients, 106 employees, and in addition, about 100 people sought outpatient care every day. Thanks to the reverse osmosis system installed by the charitable organization, potable water is now supplied not only to people at the hospital’s therapeutic department, including the staff, but also to about 1,000 residents of the surrounding areas who come to the hospital to get the water.
