The Turkish Agency for Cooperation and Coordination (TІKA) has financed repairs in two schools in the Kherson region, the press service of the organization reports.

TІKA financed installation of metal framed vinyl windows in the secondary school of the village of Rykove (former Partyzany), and also helped to replace the windows, repair the roof and winterize the facade of the secondary school No. 1 of the village of Novooleksiivka.
