On October 10, „Open Society Georgia Foundation"hosted the groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the construction of the first Children's Hospice in Georgia. This was an idea born several years ago that became possible with the help of business partner Medical Corporation „Evex", the President of Georgia Giorgi Margvelashvili and individual donors. Groundbreaking ceremony in the suburbs of Tbilisi gathered corporate and individual donors, journalists, families of children receiving domiciliary palliative care services and civil activists. Construction of the first Children's Hospice will be completed by the end of 2016. The Children's Hospice will provide 24/7 care on hospice's premises plus day center and home care services.
