The mayor outlined the main axes of the past year. First of all the operation of the health center, an important and essential project for the village.

Igor and Olga, Ukrainian refugees in Castelnau-Montratier

A couple of Ukrainians have been staying in Castelnau-Montratier for a few weeks. From the start of the conflict, the municipality positioned itself with the Prefecture by offering accommodation for Ukrainian refugees. It was at the end of the year that the arrival of the couple was announced.

Olga and Igor come from the Donetsk region where they lost everything. The language barrier did not facilitate communication, but that evening, Dominique Marin introduced them and in the end several people went to meet them. A few words of Russian, and a lot of Google translation made it possible to get to know each other better.

Since then a small network has been formed so that they can integrate into the community.
