A Centre for Rehabilitation and Prosthetics for military people has been opened in Georgia.
The Georgian Defence Ministry informed Trend that the project to support the injured soldiers was promoted by the Defence Ministry with support of the USA and Office of Defence Cooperation (ODC).
Soon, Georgian solders injured during the ISAF mission can go through the physical, social and psychological rehabilitation course at the clinic which meets international standards and is fully equipped.
On Tuesday the Centre for Social Rehabilitation for Persons with Disabilities Ltd. was visited by U.S. Ambassador in Georgia Richard Norland and Head of Medical department of Joint Headquarters vice Colonel Medea Betashvili. They conducted a meeting with the centre management and were introduced to the modern capabilities of the clinic.
"It is important that the Rehabilitation Centre will serve both military and civilian people. In future, having all the modern technology, the Centre will give a chance to injured solders, as well as to civilians to undergo a full rehabilitation course. This also takes place in the US where such centres are open both for the military and civil population. The current programme is financed by the U.S. Defence Department," Norland said.
