So, the target of the project implemented in the period between August,15 and October, 30, 2011 was the modernization of the building (heat insulation, mounting of PVC doors and windows, reinforcement of the walls and ceiling, fitting rooms with ceramic tiles, walls’ painting). As well, inside the medical station sanitary conveniences have been arranged and there were purchased a new air-conditioning unit and a heating unit using fuel-wood in order to provide the thermal comfort. Rehabilitation works have been done with the help of 30 volunteers, who alongside with the medical doctor and nurses involved themselves in the project promotion and organization of school workshops debating subjects related to health. The partnership with the village school has involved more than 50 pupils in secondary project activities on weekly basis. "I belong to this locality, I was born and a I have spent my childhood here. After University and internship I returned into a world were medics come and go away. I stayed as a family doctor and tried to know better community problems and to help them having a better health. The building has to be renovated and the “Together for everybody” program has represented a fantastic opportunity for village people. This very project did not only raise the level of the medical act, but took out citizens from inertia specific to rural localities and have engaged them in interesting activities”, has declared Medical Doctor Ioana Mantă.
