Think before you throw out!

HPIM1404One area of activity of the LatRC is the provision of humanitarian aid to people who cannot afford to supply basic needs for themselves (food, clothing, school books, etc.). The LatRC operates as an assistant to the state institutions in the area of humanitarian aid and, within the scope of its abilities, provides support to socially vulnerable inhabitants (the deprived, low-income persons, persons with disablement, persons who have been released from imprisonment, etc.), as well as institutions operating in the social sphere.

The LatRC Committees operate throughout Latvia, distributing humanitarian aid deliveries to the deprived families, hospitals, countryside schools, libraries, former prisoners, etc.). The LatRC Committees have humanitarian aid points (clothing, footwear, accessories for clothes, various textile products and other goods).

In case you wish to share goods that are in a good condition and can still be used, but you no longer need them, they can be donated at any humanitarian aid point. Prior to donating goods, please contact the respective humanitarian aid point.
