06.07.2015 / Charity Concert “Children of War” in Latvia, Jūrmala

Fund raising for Ukrainian orphans

Rotary International is beyond politics but always present when help is needed for the most vulnerable. Today in Europe it is Ukraine and those Ukrainian children who have lost their parents in war. Orphanages are overcrowded. There are shortages in food and medicines.

Children are not at fault, children do not declare war, children who have lost their parents, their homes and their childhood are the greatest victims of this war. We cannot stop the war but we can support these children with our kindness and affection.

Latvia is the first nation in Europe to call out to the world’s most compassionate people, to support fund raising for the children in Ukraine.

The highlight of this fundraising effort will be a large scale Charity Concert “Children of War” taking place on 6 July 2015 in Latvia, City of Jūrmala (20 km from Riga) Dzintari Concert Hall.

We invite you to ATTEND the Charity Concert by purchasing tickets via the ticket box office www.bilesuparadize.lv and /or MAKE A DONATION starting from 10 EUR to support the children of Ukraine.

Eesti Rotary Keskuse visiit Lätti, 2013

Teisipäeval, 3. detsembril võttis Eesti Rotary Keskuse juhatus ette visiidi Lätti, et mälestada Eesti rotariaanide nimel Riia kaubanduskeskuse tragöödias hukkunuid ning avaldada kaastunnet Läti rotariaanidele ja inimestele.
Meie neljaliikmelist delegatsiooni (Arvo V., Peep M., Raivo H. ja Sirje K.,) oli RC Riga Ridzene klubikoosolekule tervitama tulnud lisaks mitmetele külalistele Läti teistest klubidest ka Eesti Vabariigi suursaadik Mati Vaarmann, kes oma sõnavõtus tunnustas Eesti rotariaanide ühisalgatust teha piiriülest koostööd Läti rahvast tabanud õnnetuses kannatanute abistamiseks, nimetades seda ajalooliseks sündmuseks. Teadaolevalt on tegemist esimese omataolise algatuse ja koostööga alates 1932. aastast, mil loodi esimene klubi Lätis. Ka avaldas suursaadik lootust, et head suhted Eesti ja Läti rotariaanide vahel ei katke ka tulevikus.
Fondist ja toetusest: ühiselt allkirjastati resolutsioon, milles sätestati kogutavate vahendite säilitamine fondis “Latvijas Rotari Atbalsta Fonds”seni, kuni on selgunud õnnetuses kannatada saanud abivajavad sihtgrupid ja iseäranis need, kes kohesest riigi, kindlustusseltside ja muude organisatsioonide tähelepanust kõrvale on jäänud.
Kokkuvõtvalt: meie visiit kinnitas veendumust, et ellukutsutud toetusprojekt ja mälestuskontserdid on üks õigetest ja võimalikest viisidest, kuidas me rotariaanidena saame ühiskonda teenida ka kriitilistel momentidel.
