Ambassador Degnan’s visit to Kakheti Domestic Violence shelter
May 17, 2021

Ambassador Degnan visited Kakheti Domestic Violence shelter, a small, family-equipped facility, which was fully renovated through U.S. Government funding from the Secretary of State’s Office of Global Women’s Issues and the Bureau of International Law Enforcement and Narcotics. Prior to its opening in 2016 there was no such institution in Kakheti.

Ambassador Degnan and Deputy Minister for Internally Displaced Persons Barkalaia met with the beneficiaries and staff of the shelter, presented them with books, and learned about their living conditions, needs, and challenges.
