Fund raising for Ukrainian orphans

Rotary International is beyond politics but always present when help is needed for the most vulnerable. Today in Europe it is Ukraine and those Ukrainian children who have lost their parents in war. As a result of Russia’s aggression, the orphanages are overcrowded.

Children are not at fault, children do not declare war, children who have lost their parents, their homes and their childhood are the greatest victims of this war. We cannot stop the war but we can support these children with our kindness and affection.

Latvia as the first nation in Europe is calling out for the world’s most compassionate people to support fund raising for the children in Ukraine.

Initiated & Organized by Rotary in Latvia

The initiators and organizers of the Charity Concert are Rotary clubs in Latvia from District 2410 in cooperation with the individual volunteers of various professions.

Rotary stands for peace, compassion and charity and with Rotary logo on the stage we can say out loudly – Rotary stands for the future of Ukrainian children regardless of their ethnicity.

The patroness of the concert is Ms. Ināra Mūrniece, the Speaker of the Latvian Parliament (Saeima). The concert will be attended by the Ukrainian government and the state representatives from the neighboring countries.

Donations for rehabilitation

The collected donations, including the income from the concert, and charitable contributions, raised during the broadcast on the National TV and WEB, will be used to bring dozens of Ukrainian children who have lost a parent to war and now live in the orphanages to several Latvia’s sanatoriums in September-November where they will brighten up their spirit and regain their well-being over the course of a few weeks.
