Daily care centre Diakonie Litoměřice successfully completed a reconstruction and will be moving to a new modernised building. Committee of Good Will was one of the donors with a contribution of CZK 50,000. The money was used to repair the floors in order to provide a fully barrier-free interior.
“Wednesday, July 10, was the long awaited D-day. Last workers left the place and were replaced by clients and employees of Diakonie, friends and distinguished guests, who met to recall what it was like in the original basements, to boast how they managed to connect the reconstruction and normal operation, and most importantly, to wish clients and employees good luck at the new place.
A reason for this great and expensive reconstruction was not only the insufficient capacity of the centre but also its qualitative improvement in such a way that it would better meet the disabled people needs. New completely barrier-free light place was built in order to enable people to work together as well as individually. It provides enough space for learning, training, working and also relaxing.
The free basement space will not stay abandoned. It will be used for sheltered workshops. Therefore more people with handicap could be employed.
Although it was a tough year because of financing and organising all the work, keeping the centre open while the reconstruction was going on, we all agreed that it was worth it. Now we can finally enjoy it and starting in September the attic will be completely in use.”
