SIF reported that in December the share of the population donated to support Ukraine had increased by 11 percentage points compared to spring data.

41% of respondents have donated money, while 31% have donated goods, clothes, food or other useful material.

Younger respondents, respondents with higher levels of education and income, respondents who have previously donated money or belongings to charity, as well as those who do not support Russia's invasion of Ukraine, have more frequently donated to Ukraine or to Ukrainian refugees.

The most active donors have been in the planning regions of Vidzeme (69%) and Zemgale (63%) last year, followed by the  planning region of Rīga (61%), Kurzeme (56%) and Latgale (32%).
