The volunteer movement “Viegli palīdzēt” (“Easy to Help”) in cooperation with the public administration and non-governmental organizations organizes coordinated coordination and delivery of humanitarian aid to the population of Ukraine.
We are working with the Latvian Scout and Guide Central Organization, the Latvian Platform for Development Cooperation, “Charity Page”, “palidzesim.lv”, the Latvian Samaritan Association, “Paēdušai Latvijai” (“For a fed Latvia”), Latvian Countryside forum and other NGO’s.
Coordinated humanitarian aid means that requests for specific goods are received from Ukraine and only the necessary goods are assembled in bulk. “Viegli palīdzēt” cooperates with municipalities and organizations in Ukraine to identify needs, and volunteers coordinate both the loading of humanitarian cargos in Latvia and the distribution of humanitarian aid in Ukraine or, if necessary, at the Poland-Ukraine border.
We urge all businesses, that can support with humanitarian aid, to apply, indicating the goods that the company can donate. You can apply here. After filling in the questionnaire, the representatives of the volunteer movement will contact you, indicating the address for delivery of the goods to the logistics centre in Riga and agreeing on the exact amount of the goods. In cooperation with the public administration, the goods will be delivered to Ukraine.
We ask civilians not to organize the aid themselves or take it to the Poland-Ukraine border – we highly appreciate the willingness and readiness of the Latvian civilian population to help, but according to organizations and public authorities, uncoordinated activity is creating chaos and queues that are preventing Ukrainian refugees from safely reaching the European Union. The aid to Ukrainian war refugees is needed now and will be needed for a very long time to come. We ask any civilian who wants to help in any way (donating goods, offering transport, offering accommodation, etc.) to register here. Upon receipt of the application, our volunteers will contact you to coordinate the aid immediately.
We call on everyone to get involved and help the Ukrainian civilian population. We remind you that you can still help by making financial donations as well.
Let us be united and provide coordinated humanitarian aid so that it reaches those who need it as soon as possible!
