Palīdzē Team at Lattelecom Riga Marathon 2015
Charity organization team took part in Lattelecom Riga Marathon this year to promote healthy and sporty lifestyle as well as social inclusion.

Just like in previous years team consisted of youth from socially vulnerable groups under its wing as well as employees of the organization. This year on initiative of the youth a new challenge was accepted – the majority of the team ran 10 km.

On the day of the marathon the team was anxious as it was the first race for many of them and the weather was not so sunny this year :). However, on the starting line the anxiety faded away. Fantastic sense of togetherness made all the runners feel safe and devoted.

We all finished :) and I must say that the results of our team were really good!!!

After the marathon we went to the restaurant Vairak Saules. Thank you so much for the tasty pizzas!

The project is co-funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway.

Mareks's Painting Presentation

Mareks's dream about his own painting presentation has come true.

Mareks Odumins's (Mareks Odumiņš) painting presentation was held at Andrejsala, Noliktava No. 3 on May 28 with the support of charity organization Mareks has been paralysed since an unfortunate jump into a lake 4 years ago and he is painting with a brush in his mouth.

Despite his limited abilities Mareks is a positive, active young man. He is motivated to continue education and help other unfortunate young people with his art in future.

Mareks has created a number of wonderful pieces of art and he wanted to sell his paintings instead begging for money to continue his rehabilitation. His biggest dream is to hold a brush in his hand. At the painting presentation everyone had a chance to buy Markes's work – nearly 30 paintings found a new home. It gives Mareks great inspiration to continue his artistic work and growth.


Beauty Day for Mothers

At the beginning of May we organized a beauty day for at-risk group mothers in honour of Mother's Day in association with Riga Social Service Territorial Centre Agenskalns. We used the nice premises of the creative association TREPES in Pardaugava as the event venue. We made this beautiful day come true with the help of our great voluntary friends – Dana Dombrovska, Jelena Kanuta (Jeļena Kaņuta), Manicure Masters Zane and Ramona, the great team led by Tamara Kanuka (Tamāra Kaņuka), Master Hairdresser from Dzintreks salon, (hairdressers Krista Lejniece, Nauris Tisančins (Nauris Tisančins), Kaspars Brikovskis from Riga Top Hair).
