People from Latvia donate food for Ukrainian students and their families

We are humbled to experience an overwhelming and heart-warming response from people in Latvia providing tangible support to our Ukrainian students and their families residing in SSE Riga’s student dormitories.

A message from SSE Riga staff member Janis Meija, who is coordinating help:

"Thank you to everyone who has donated food – now we have full stocks to feed everyone as we have more people arriving from Ukraine to SSE Riga dormitories this week. The response has been amazing! Kind people have donated vegetables (a ton of potatoes), dry goods, canned goods, and much more. Many people came with products that they made themselves (homemade jams, juices, pickles, etc.). Larysa, mom of our Ukrainian student Daria, has taken on the role of house mother, and chief of the kitchen in the dormitories. Daria, her mom and her little sister arrived last week from Ukraine.

Thank you to everyone - Latvian farmers and so many people from the countryside for showing care!”
