Visit Easter charity fair at Domina mall in Rīga

An Easter charity fair, where the handicrafts of seniors and people with disabilities can be purchased, takes place in Rīga, the shopping center “Domina” this week, Latvian Radio reports.

Twelve craftspeople or their representatives have gathered. The offer is extensive - jewelry, socks, candles, wooden kitchenware, ceramic dishes, and more.

“These things are made by children with vision impairments, children with disabilities, adults and children alike, in Jugla, Strazdumuiža [boarding school for the blind],” explained Dzidra, a Member of the Society of the Blind of Latvia.

“This is an opportunity for a bit of pension increases because pensions are like that... and also that people like it, and that you can make someone happy. The greatest joy is when they come up and say, how beautiful,” said weaver Dzintra.

All the attendees invest what they earn to continue production.

“Then I've figured out that I could take driving lessons and study and then drive around the fairs in a car. It's a dream, well, I hope it comes true,” jewelry maker Ginta told LTV.

The Easter Charity fair will run until Wednesday, March 27. Sellers wait for visitors and stress that every good word matters to them too.
