On November 22, SOS children's villages in Latvia received the Cabinet of Minister's Award for their contribution to the development of the system of support for out-of-family care, children and families as well as for supporting children's interests. SOS children's villages in Latvia help more than 1,200 children a year, with all sorts of support also given to parents, guardians, foster families and others. Equally important is the association's contribution to the development of social services in Latvia, including expanding opportunities for people who would not be able to live in a family environment.
On behalf of the SOS children's villages in Latvia, the Award was received Ilze Paleja, Director and Ivars Grunte, Member of the Council.
The award is a great honor and appreciation for the contribution of the entire SOS children's village team - SOS mothers, nannies, social workers, psychologists and other colleagues who have been caring for the most vulnerable part of Latvian society for twenty-five years - for orphaned, abandoned and other children at risk of losing their family.
We re-affirm our commitment to the values that AmCham stands for and that we share.
