Members of the public in Georgia in just eight days raised enough money for the purchase of 200 generators for Ukrainians under the “Share the Light” initiative, Georgian newspaper NewsGeorgia reported on Dec. 7.

A total of 1,176 residents of Georgia have already joined in the initiative. The fund-raising effort will last until Dec. 12, and generators should be delivered to Ukraine by Dec. 24.

All of the generators will have stickers with the names of the people who helped buy them.

Prime Minister of Georgia Iraklii Garibashvili announced on Dec. 7 that the country’s government would not provide military aid to Ukraine.
