U.S. Ambassador to Georgia Richard Norland joined Georgia's Deputy Minister of Health Davit Lomidze and representatives of national and international nongovernmental organizations at a presentation of assistive and adaptive mobility equipment for persons with disabilities in Georgia. 

At this event organized by the Coalition for Independent Living (CIL) and the Neurodevelopment Center (NDC), the USAID supported Wheelchair Production Network project is presenting a new, lightweight, electric wheelchair and postural support seating products.

The Wheelchair Production Network project, implemented by USAID, is one of the ways the U.S. Government is supporting and promoting the inclusion of persons with disabilities in Georgia.

In addition, USAID’s two-year Disability Advocacy Project aims to strengthen the capacity of disabled people’s organizations and promote the active participation of people with disabilities in policy making at national, regional and local levels.
