More than 31 000 children treated

Aug 15, 2018

RMHC Latvija's (Care Mobile) mission is to get doctors from the Children's Clinical University's Hospital to children all across Latvia. More than 31 000 children have been treated and have received medical consultations since the year 2011. 

This year, the Care Mobile has already made 75 visits to different places in Latvia and 3000 children have received medical consultations from highly qualified doctors. All expenses for the visits are covered by the organization - each visit is estimated at 25 EUR, but every euro is donated by supporters of the charity - through corporate and private supporters. Everyone can donate and support this activity thus helping children. We encourage you to be among them!

Outside of Riga, there are only 5 hospitals that specialize in pediatric care. This makes the Care mobile healthcare service critical to the basic healthcare needs of nearly 1/2 of Latvia's children, especially in rural areas. The consultations from oculists, allergists and neurologists are very highly requested, followed by physiotherapists, gastroenterologists, speech therapists, eye, nose and throat doctors and endocrinologists.

Additionally, they continue to provide services to children living at the social care centers, orphanages and others in the care of the state - this year they forecast treating about 1,000 children with special needs.
