Why the Baltic States

A Promise to Latvia and Beyond.

Our organization naturally began its work in Latvia. It’s a small country with an economy near the bottom of the European Union. A country with the third largest population of medically institutionalized children in Europe. 40% of the families at risk of extreme poverty.

In Latvia, we found our need. But many other families of Baltic States find themselves in almost identical positions.

And so our mission expands. Thanks to the resources of our donors and the commitment of our caregiver partners in those countries, Brigitta’s Promise is being kept 80 years later.

Raising donations for the treatment of children’s rehabilitation is usually their parents’ choice:

  • Because of the long lines that they should wait in before getting the necessary health check-up or the rehabilitation course. There are situations, when people need to wait for months until they get to visit a specialist or to receive a treatment.
  • Because the government covers only a limited number of sessions or procedures, but a systematic, long-term work is required to improve health.
  • Because, often, there are situations when the government covers only specific types of aiding devices, which are not always of best quality and most suited for the individual. Therefore, the parents are still looking for the best and most comfortable option for improving the daily life of their child.

Most frequently, “Palīdzēsim.lv” attracts donations for children with life-long disorders, such as autism spectrum disorders, motor disorders, hearing and visual impairments, etc. Even, if the government is covering treatment abroad, “Palīdzēsim.lv” raises donations for transportation and parent accommodation costs.

The government covers treatment only in the European Economic Area and Switzerland. However, the parents of the sick children might choose Russia or Ukraine, for example, for dolphin therapy that significantly benefits the children’s health. Also, often, the parents choose Russia or Ukraine, because they know Russian and thus would be able to communicate with the attending physicians and the rest of the staff.
