One Town, One Day, One Child at a time

Jul 29, 2016
Since 2011 well over 20,000 Latvian children have received free medical care near their homes across Latvia from the Care Mobile team. RMHC Latvija delivers Latvia's best doctors to children in every corner of the country for free treatment at an average of only EUR 25 per child. Every Euro is donated by supporters of the charity. You are invited to be among them!

Each year Care Mobile provides more than 1,000 eye exams to the children throughout Latvia. Unfortunately often many families cannot afford glasses and a child remains visually impaired. The Care Mobile team is accepting donations. If you have glasses with frames intact which you no longer need, RMHC Latvia is ready to collect them.

Outside of Riga, there are only 5 hospitals that specialize in pediatric care. This makes our mobile healthcare service critical to the basic healthcare needs of nearly 1/2 of Latvia's children.

In 2015, RMHC Latvija Care Mobile focused on providing medical care to children living at the social care centers, orphanages and other children in the care of the state. We treated over 1,000 of these children with special needs in 2015.

All services provided by the Care Mobile are free of charge for the patients. All the expenses related to its operation are covered by 100% donations funded through corporate and private supporters including: 77Agency, AmCham Latvia, Cemex, Coca-Cola HBC Latvia, DHL Latvia, Diatom Enterprises, DnB Bank, Grand Palace Hotel, International Women's Club of Riga, KPMG, Klavins Ellex, LatRosTrans, Linstow, Microsoft, Neste Oil, Olympic Casino Latvia, Premier Restaurants Latvia, RB Management, COBALT, Radisson Blu Hotels in Latvia, Rotary Club of Riga International, Skrivanek Baltic, AON Baltic, Merhels Revidenti Konsultanti, Volvo Trucks Latvija, USA Embassy, DiatomArt, Hotel Bergs and many others.

Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) creates, finds and supports programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children around the world for almost 40 years. In 2011 RMHC Latvija launched a program called Mobile Health Care Center.
