Hundreds of Latvian pupils prepare big donation for Ukraine

Although it is difficult to surprise activists of the Ukraine-supporting association “Your Friends”, Latvian school students have managed to do so. Several hundred students in 100 Latvian schools have responded to the call to provide donations to soldiers, Latvian Television reported on February 18.

These days, one car after another drive to Rīga, bringing student donations. On Saturday, February 17, the first cargo of aid was on its way to the front, which will deliver food, clothes, and other goods needed for the front.

LTV visited Āgenskalns Primary School, where students prepared their parcels.

Rolands: “I made the package because I was very keen to help Ukraine and I know it's very difficult for them. There's food and socks.”

Emīls: “Mostly I put food in there but also razors so they can shave, wet wipes.”

Jorens: “We put things that were for us if there was a war. But we realized it was more important to them. Biscuits, tea, preserves.”

Klāvs: “We put the instant noodles and boots my mum gave.”

Melānija: “It's important to help because the good always comes back. And others need something, too, because we have everything. ”

Eduards: “The boxes are decorated because they give the soldier warm heart and love.”

Tamāra: “Those packages are prepared with love and with the hope that schools help and win the war!”


The teacher has no doubt that such an act raises patriotism. When parcels arrive on Ventspils Street for the association Your Friends, the coordinators are pleasantly suprised. Another full palette of donations. The association hadn't expected that.

“Āgenskalns State Gymnasium alone did this last year. We figured out this year that we could call more broadly,” Liene Āķīte, the campaign's coordinator, said. “We've got the regions bringing items, too! 100 schools have responded! It's grand! We didn't expect it.”
