We started out the year by finishing some good deeds from the previous year! Last week, two representatives from the NCCL Harolds Bulmanis and Ilze Garoza together with the Norwegian Ambassador to Latvia Kristian Ødegaard visited the crisis center „Namiņš" in Auce, which operates a soup kitchen and provides safe space for meeting for over 80 kids from underprivileged families. The delegation visited Auce to deliver gifts donated by NCCL members during the most recent NCCL Charity Drive.
Many thanks to all NCCL members who participated and donated to the cause!
During the visit, we were delighted to meet representatives from Circle K (including a generous and entertaining Santa), which have been supporting „Namiņš" for many years now. Each child received a hand-picked gift from the Circle K team members and a healthy pack of snacks donated by SunCrisp.
„Namiņš" is also long-time recipient of support from the Lilleaker Lions Club in Norway, which has provided support to the crisis center for its renovation and heating expenses. The daily operation of the center is ensured by a team of volunteers, who devote their skills, time and energy in support of the children.
