How to fix wooden kitchen cabinet

Looking for some help with fixing one of my kitchen cabinets. One of our kids got something caught on the knob when walking past and it ripped the hinge out of the inside as well as damaged the wood. I've attached photos. I also added photos of the other side where I am guessing the previous owners had a similar experience and tried to repair it themselves, but not very well. Is there any good way to fix these properly without having to replace them? Is there a good way to fix the one that they tried repairing already?

Doesn't look like wood to me, looks like paper covered particle board. You can try gluing the paper back and moving the hinge up about a half inch. Larger screws would be a quicker fix than moving but not sure there is enough for them to hold.

I'd try and figure out how to replace that damaged piece of particle board with plywood. It might not look like the rest but inside the cabinet - who'd notice.
