For a few years now, LAdS has been working on renovating bathrooms and kitchenettes in groups. While all bathrooms have been done, there were five kitchenettes remaining
We are happy to let you know that thanks to kind support of a dear friend and sponsor one more kitchenette has been fully renewed (4 more to go).

As always, when repairing, much attention was paid to safety and sanitary norms: that’s why both kitchenettes have been built from scratch. Everything: walls, floor, water, electrical and heating systems are new.
