Support our charities
AmCham raises €2500 for charities

Rather than buying a traditional Christmas card, we decided to make a donation to our principal charities:, Latvian Foster Family Association, Pink Train Foundation, RMHC Latvija and SOS Children's Villages this year. Along with donations received through our Virtual Christmas Charity raffle on December 10, the total of €2500 was transferred to the charities.

Donate for happy childhood

SOS Children's Villages is looking for both financial and in-kind donations to support the children from SOS Children's Villages, SOS Family Support Centers and SOS Out-of-family Care Support centers "Airi vecākiem". By becoming a supporter you will help bring Christmas joy to the children in need. SOS Children's Villages welcomes donation of sweets, Christmas trees, bicycles as Christmas presents and/or financial donations to support their ongoing activities.

Bringing over 4000 doctor visits to children of Latvia

Since 2011, RMHC Latvija has provided more than 40 000 free medical consultations for children in Latvia with the help of Care Mobile and a dedicated team of more than 25 doctors. This year alone over 4000 visits have been arranged. Donations are the only income for RMHC Latvija, therefore every single donation is of great importance to maintain regular medical check-ups to minimize the risk that diseases and conditions are not being diagnosed and treated early enough, or at all.

More than 700 women have been helped over past 6 years

During 2020 the Pink Train Foundation has continued to provide support for women in Latvia diagnosed with breast cancer, covering the costs of counselling following diagnosis and during treatment and/or physiotherapy. The Foundation's only income is through donations and all donations big or small will be greatly appreciated so that it can continue its mission of raising support and awareness.

Become a Christmas angel for one of the 405 children!

The Latvian Foster Family Association, who takes regular care of more than 193 families raising 405 children in different regions of Latvia, is organizing a campaign "Christmas Angels" and is looking for donations to support the children in foster care. By becoming a donating angel you will help bring Christmas joy to children in need.

BEZVESTS.LV needs sonar equipment to find missing people

We invite you to support BEZVESTS.LV the only volunteer organization providing missing persons search in Latvia since 2009. 130 people including alive persons and human remains have been found in more than 1381 search operations. Currently BEZVESTS.LV is looking for a financial support to obtain a special underwater sonar equipment that would help detect human remains in water.

BITE funds activities of Dr. Clown

BITE is fully funding the association "Dr. Clown" in December by covering 500 working hours of Dr. Clowns to support little patients in hospitals all over Latvia. Currently Dr. Clowns bring joy to their little patients, especially if they have to spend Christmas time in the hospital. This need is exacerbated by the emergency situation and the circumstances of the pandemic, which have also led to emotional exhaustion for parents and medical staff.
