About Our Charity Work

Charity Bazaar is our biggest Charity Event 

Charity Bazaar is our biggest Charity Event

The IWCR and its members seek to raise funds to provide support and financial assistance for charities carefully selected each year. Our primary focus is on helping families, young mothers, the elderly and the abused both in Riga and the Latvian countryside. By working closely with and listening to the staff and management of these organisations, we aim to provide specific items or products which make a real difference to people’s day-to-day lives. The IWCR’s main fundraising activity is the Christmas Bazaar. In addition, we offer our volunteer work very often throughout the year, directly to our charities. All our activities are announced to IWCR members.

How Can You Help

The Charity Committee

The Charity Committee meets to discuss how best to use IWCR funds to assist the needy in Latvia. The committee is responsible for finding truly needy organisations or sometimes individuals and assessing the amount and form of assistance required.

This may lead to one or more visits to facilities under consideration to access them and meet with their directors and staff. It also may include working with local authorities, embassies or other entities to determine the legal and tax status of organisations as well as whether or not they might be receiving funds from other sources.
