Convoys from Germany arrived bringing much-needed goods, including food to help the country to get over this traumatic period. In 1997, as Georgia entered a phase of recovery, ASB ended its programme, but personal contacts, together with the positive image of the organisation among locals, were maintained.

    SSK (Sakartvelos Samaritelta Kavshiri) - sister organisation of ASB Georgia, is a non-profit, non-religious and non-political organization, which was actively involved in distribution of humanitarian aid back in 1990-ies.  SSK and ASB Saarbrücken organized delivery of food and clothes from Germany to Georgia. Since all activities were purely volunteer-based and SSK faced required resource limits it had to cease its activities in 1997. 
    In 2010 when ASB opened its country office in Georgia, SSK relaunched its operations, establishing a number of projects supporting children, persons with disability and the older persons. 
    Currently SSK is the one of the expert organisations when it comes to provision the First Aid and Disaster Risk Reduction trainings.
