In the Belobozhnytskyi community, heating points were created on the basis of 5 local outpatient clinics of general medicine and family medicine. In the conditions of frequent power cuts, the points required alternative sources of electricity.
Therefore, thanks to the won subsidy, there are heating centers in the dispensaries of the villages of Biloboznytsia, Zhuryn, Zvynyach, Kosiv and Budaniv, which have uninterrupted power supply. Thanks to the establishment of such centers in various establishments of the community, it has been possible to reach all the inhabitants of the community, and there are more than 11,000. In the operating centers, local residents have had the possibility not only to recharge their gadgets, to keep warm, but also to receive medical care in comfortable conditions, despite power cuts
