Ostrovskiy School building in Malovodnoye village was damaged by the 5.4 magnitude earthquake that hit Almaty oblast on May 1. 28 houses are in emergency condition after the shocks.
Around 500 children were transferred from the block with collapsed and cracked walls to the main school building. “Children now have to study in in three shifts. We are afraid to even come close to the building where they used to study before,” the parents say.
