Due to the ongoing hostilities in Ukraine and the rapid increase in the number of Ukrainian refugees in Latvia, it is necessary to continue to actively and accurately inform the Latvian population and Ukrainian refugees. The project's aim is to coordinate the involvement of the civil society in support initiatives and to ensure the availability of regularly updated information to Latvian citizens and Ukrainian refugees on the possibilities of providing and receiving support.

In order to achieve proactive participation of the Latvian civil society, it is needed to:

1) Maintenance of the NGO Information Point in the Riga Support Centre for Ukrainians, which provides up-to-date information on the types of assistance offered by civil society to Ukrainians in Latvia, as well as involves volunteers in providing assistance.
2) Maintaining the map of charity organisations (; on the possibilities to provide and receive humanitarian aid throughout the territory of Latvia.
3) Maintaining the events calendar website ( and collecting information on upcoming events organised by the state and civil society in support of Ukraine.
4) Creation of an information resource addressing the issue of renting properties to Ukrainian refugees in Latvia, which would allow Latvian citizens to get involved and receive the necessary information on secure and legally safe renting.

The target group of the project is the Latvian population and their involvement in providing support to Ukrainian refugees. The expected results of the project are the coordinated involvement of the Latvian civil society in the project initiatives, as well as up to date information of available opportunities for those who offer and receive help. Maintaining or establishing these project initiatives will provide ample opportunities to involve Latvian citizens in volunteering, cultural events, donating, rental of property and other forms of support.
