TimeRepublik Georgia organizes workshop on “COVID-19 Safety Tips and Precautions” for volunteers

Today, when the world is facing the
Coronavirus challenge, efficient and rapid dissemination of critical information has become one of the main means to slow down the spread of the
virus. Already now, a number of organizations are running public awareness
campaigns with reference to the recommendations issued by the World Health
Organization (WHO).

Volunteers have been numerously involved in
the fight against the pandemic –worldwide as well as in Georgia.
Recommendations from trusted and professional sources are equally important for
both, the population and the volunteers involved in the activities planned by
the Government. Hence, they also became the fundament of the online workshop “COVID-19
Safety Tips and Precautions” hosted by TimeRepublik Georgia on April 7.

The workshop addressed the following topics
of public interest: COVID-19 signs and symptoms; the viability of the
coronavirus in the air and on surfaces; the importance of proper disinfection;
as well as current rules, safety tips, and precautions. It was conducted
voluntarily by Nino Avaliani, Head of the Georgian Red Cross chapter in Kutaisi.

Participants were informed about the event through
the volunteering platform timerepublik.com,
the platform’s Georgian Facebook page, as well as through the regional hubs of
the project “Civil Society Sustainability Initiative’ (CSSIGE). Due to the urgency of the topic and efficient mouth-to-mouth advertising, the number of the
workshop recording’s views are constantly increasing.

CSSIGE’s new awareness campaign encompasses
actions for different target groups. The focus of the workshop was especially on
volunteers who are involved in supportive activities for vulnerable groups planned
by the self-governments to face the hardships caused by COVID-19.

Ten volunteers who have been selected with
the help of the hubs, will act as multipliers and share the gained with their
peers and other interested people online.

The workshop was conducted in the frame of
the project „Civil Society Sustainability Initiative” implemented by the
Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS), the Civil Society Institute (CSI), the
Consultation and Training Center (CTC), the Center for Strategic Research and
the Development of Georgia (CSRDG) and the Education Development and Employment
Center (EDEC). The project is funded by the European Union (EU) and co-funded
by the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS).
