The reconstruction of the second building of the Gyumri orphanage
"Hope" will initiate as soon as the weather gets warmer. The account of
the project expenditure has already been presented but the construction
competition has not been held yet.

According to the head of the orphanage, the competition will be held
in Yerevan, and the construction organization will likely be selected
from the capital.

The primary cost of the building is 100 thousand USD.

30 thousand EU of the total sum was given by the French province Bush
due Ron. Only the reconstruction of the roof requires 15 thousand
USD. At present the orphanage doesn't have the necessary sum, so the
construction will start from the exterior and then they will pass
to the roof and finish it by the time the governor of Bush due Ron
Noel Gerin arrives in Gyumri. The director of the orphanage Ruben
Markosyan voices hope that Gerin will give money for the rest of the
restoration provided he likes the interior work.

Otherwise, they will have to look for new benefactors and sponsors.
