EUCOM and ODC Donate Equipment to the Government of Racha-Lechkhumi and Kvemo Svaneti
Through the United States European Command’s Humanitarian Assistance program, the U.S. Embassy’s Office of Defense Cooperation, with the support of the Commander of the Georgian National Guard – BG Roman Jokhadze, over $231K worth of equipment was donated to the Government of Racha-Lechkhumi and Kvemo Svaneti. This donation increases the municipality’s disaster preparedness and response capabilities and enables the local government’s ability to respond to natural disasters more efficiently. This is the first of many donations in the region made possible through the U.S. and Georgia cooperation, with $2M more planned for medical services, emergency response, and disaster preparedness. The result of our cooperation is a stronger, more resilient Georgia that is capable of handling natural or manufactured disasters. Together we can improve the lives of every Georgian. Strength is in Unity!!
