You could use Һ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shha), for example,
which is used for /h/ in several Cyrillic-using languages.
Or, if you're not absolutely wedded to Г as /g/, you could do the
Ukrainian thing (sort of) and use Ґ for /g/ and Г for /h/.
Or, as Dana pointed out, consider using Ҳ; according to Wikipedia (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soft_Kha ), it's /h/ in a number of
languages that use it.
