- First Aid Training and First Aid Centre in Tbilisi -
During 2010, Tag supported the Georgia Red Cross in the delivery of a comprehensive training programme over a six month period in the Senaki region of Georgia. It involved extensive first aid training, publication and distribution of informational material and building links with community organisations. Tag also helped the Georgia Red Cross to refurbish and equip a new first aid training centre at its headquarters in Tbilisi, where volunteers participate in first aid courses.
“Tag’s commitment as a long-term partner is very important for us.”
Ms. Nana Tskhondia, Deputy Director General,
Georgia Red Cross Society
In March 2011, Tag and the Georgia Red Cross formally opened the First Aid Training Centre. Representatives from Tag were joined at the ceremony by His Excellency Itzhak Gerber, Israeli Ambassador to Georgia.
