Slovakia is helping Georgia in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic by offering €45,000 to purchase necessary equipment for a newly opened hospital in the village of Rukhi located about a kilometre from Enguri Bridge, which connects Russia-occupied Abkhazia with the rest of Georgia.

Rukhi hospital will be able to purchase equipment to be used in anesthesiology for adult and pediatric patients, surgical lights, an operating table, a defibrillator, a volumetric infusion pump, videolaryngoscope and other medical devices.

After the provision of the Slovak grant, Rukhi hospital will be able to increase the capacity for health care of patients with various diagnoses, including those in critical condition. With this extraordinary contribution, which was approved by the Minister of Foreign and European Affairs Ivan Korcok, the Slovak Republic reaffirms that, even in such emergency situations, is still ready to provide real support to partner countries, among which Georgia has permanently belonged to", reads the press release by the Embassy of the Slovak Republic in Tbilisi. 

The money will be allocated from the SlovakAid foundation, says the embassy.
