AmCham raises EUR 2710 for charities in 2018

Dec 20, 2018

Through two AmCham events this year we have raised EUR 2710 to support charities that help promote a healthy development of Latvia's children and their rights to grow up in a family environment.

On December 6 at Christmas Charity Reception EUR 1710 were collected in benefit of our three principal charities: Latvian Foster Family AssociationRMHC Latvija (Care Mobile) and SOS Children's Villages in Latvia.

During the Annual Chili Cook-Off in October EUR 1000 of proceeds were collected to support the work of Latvian Foster Family Association, RMHC Latvija's Care Mobile and SOS Children's Villages in Latvia.

As a result many children in Latvia will be able to receive free healthcare services and family-based support.

We are greatful to all the supporters for donating goods and services to support the raffles.
