External renovation of St. Joseph’s Center completed with Renovabis funds
The Renovabis Foundation from Germany has granted us funds for finishing the exterior renovation of the old St. Joseph’s building, which hosts our main offices, the social aid office, and the social polyclinic. The renovation was executed by the company SC Armared SRL, starting from the 15th of September 2018.
We started renovating the building bit by bit, back in 2010. Since then we have managed to reconstruct the roofing, to change the old windows, and to renovate the external façade on the front side of the building (towards the street). On the interior we have renovated only a part of the groundfloor level rooms and some parts of the cellar. We are already using the renovated rooms as our main offices but the 1st floor and 2nd floor levels are still not usable on the interior.
The funds from Renovabis have enabled us to complete the external renovation of the entire building. Our plan for the future is to put in function a daycare center for the elderly here. It would be a first in Oradea. The building will also host our new educational program, which is in development right now. Special thanks to Diakon Jan Goossens for his contribution!
