Employees of the U.S. Embassy donated 19 “Personal Care” bags to the Tbilisi Domestic Violence Intake Center as care packages for women seeking safety and a new beginning after experiencing domestic violence. The bags contained personal care items necessary to support women who arrive at the shelter without any support or belongings. The supplies are intended to fill the void between arrival and the beginning of state services after a woman is classified as a victim.
For more than seven years INL has provided classes to the Ministry of Internal Affairs on both the response and investigation of domestic violence incidents. Additionally, INL has been instrumental in the development, adoption, and training of domestic violence advocates for police and prosecutors.
