Support for Society
Last update 07.05.2020
Any one of us can be affected by the restrictions introduced for stopping the spread of COVID-19. The government is providing a variety of support mechanisms for many groups in society. However, each of us can also provide support to others, especially to retirees, doctors, and those who are under strict isolation at home or in a quarantine.
The Volunteer Movement #paliecmājās is a community initiative that connects people who want to help (volunteers, social services, NGOs, and others) with people who need help the most in these times. It is a movement for practical help and it is open to everyone -- both those who want to help as volunteers and those who need help. A team of volunteers across Latvia will help you buy food, hygiene products, and over-the-counter medicines, take your dog for a walk, and deliver and receive your postal items -- or simply will call you and have a chat.
If you are in need of help, call +371 25661991. If you would like to help, visit the website or the #paliecmājās group on Facebook.
