Georgian National Committee of the Blue Shield (GNCBS) and its invited conservation consultant volunteered to train the staff of Gori Sergi Makalatia Historical and Ethnographic Museum. Training covered proper handling, wrapping and moving techniques for their collections. Renovation works on the museum building, commissioned by the municipality, are about to start, making it urgent for the museum to secure their collections.

This activity was carried out in addition to the project that GNCBS is implementing in Gori Museum with the funds from ALIPH foundation. Additional training is scheduled to take place within the project for staff of the 14 museums of the Shida Kartli region on June 29-1 July .
