Latvian charity organization has hands full supporting Ukraine

The charity organization “Ziedot.lv” has so far channeled €3.2 million of donations from a total of over six million to help Ukrainians, the head of the organization Rūta Dimanta told Latvian Television on March 16.

She said that the donations were used in three directions. One of them is helping Ukrainian territorial defense forces and volunteers. Boots, protective vests, thermal cameras, fuel, drones are purchased.

“Everything possible that Ukraine is asking for and what we, as a civil organization, can provide,” Dimanta said.

The other direction is civilian humanitarian aid when Ukraine's local governments send a list of needed items.  The third direction is to help people who have fled the war. They are provided with both hygiene kits and SIM cards and gift cards in grocery stores or pharmacies.
