The Pink Train Foundation (Foundation) was founded in December 2014 and will therefore be celebrating its 8th birthday just before Christmas. The main aim of the Foundation is to provide support for women in Latvia suffering from breast cancer, covering the costs of individual counselling following diagnosis and during treatment or after treatment has ended, as well as physiotherapy following operations related to this disease. Since its creation, the Foundation has helped over 1000 women during this difficult period in their lives and the number of women helped remains steady every year.
The Foundation currently offers to cover the costs of up to 8 counselling sessions with a psychologist or psychotherapist and these sessions can be used as needed with no time limit. If necessary, the number of visits can be increased. Regarding physiotherapy, the Foundation covers the costs of up to 10 consultations or exercise sessions with a physiotherapist. In Latvia there are often long waiting lists for state provided physiotherapy and the Pink Train Foundation aims to provide this service as soon as is needed following operations. The aim is to help women retain their physical and emotional balance as much as possible during this time and many women whom the Foundation has helped continue to exercise and be active afterwards.
In 2019 the Foundation launched the #pupkultūra (#boobculture) movement to raise awareness and reduce the fears and taboos surrounding this disease.
Those NGO's who "survived" the Pandemic are currently facing new challenges, with dramatic increases in costs and many resources being channelled to help fight the war in Ukraine. This year, therefore, the Foundation will be particularly grateful for donations so that it can continue its mission of support and awareness and will gladly discuss options with individuals or companies willing to provide financial support on a more permanent and regular basis.
