Invitation to Meet & Greet and Jewellery exhibition on February 1

January 27, 2017By

Dear ladies,

Welcome to Meet & Greet on Wednesday, February 1st, at 10:00.

This M&G we will have the opportunity to meet Carla and Habib, Syrian refugees living in Latvia, who have started a jewellery making company here in Riga. They will tell us their story and display some of their jewellery. You can buy or order jewellery if you would like, if so bring cash. There is also a fund raiser going on to help them raise enough money to buy their workshop. Please see link for more info:

On another note: One of the charities we work with, the Soup Kitchen of St. Saviour’s Church in Riga, is in need of some help from our side. The Soup Kitchen operates every Saturday and feeds about 120 people, mainly homeless and very poor individuals. These people get soup, porridge, bread and tea, other treats sometimes from donors. Recently they unfortunately had many of their mugs stolen, by several non-regulars who just came in and took the mugs with them after being served the food.

If you have any mugs/cups to spare, please bring them our next Meet and Greet? It does not matter if they are used as long as they are in one piece. Thank you!

The M&G will as usual take place on the top floor (11th) of Albert Hotel, Dzirnavu iela 33.
