The Kartu and Bidzina Ivanishvili Charitable Foundation did not limit itself to handing over this space to the capital, all the works that will be carried out – landscaping, tidying, This person will take all the costs of rehabilitation. The municipality will not have to spend a single cent. The project is being implemented with the funding of Bidzina Ivanishvili and her family, for which I would like to thank her once again .” – said the mayor of Tbilisi.
