On August 14, 2012, the four-storey, 300 sq meters building that housed the Biology Faculty of the Dagestan State Medical Academy was destroyed by fire. It was a regrettable turn of events as the Academy celebrated its 80th anniversary last year.
The biggest and the best auditorium of the Academy - a lecture hall - was completely burnt out which made it impossible to hold any events or study sessions.
During the repair works which started in November 2012 the lecture auditorium was completely restored and re-equipped with the furniture, the roof that was burnt down in the fire was restored, neighboring classrooms, corridors, staircases and all utilities were repaired.
All repair works were supported by PERI Foundation.
