Fridays we have
consciously made our little celebrations when we visit our cooperation partners
- those who distribute our supplied items further in their cities, parishes,
villages and homes. They are people and organizations that create charity
network in all of Latvia, so we could be really close (tuvu) to anyone, and it
isn’t just our name. And seeing what impact it leaves, what value it gives to
society and our people, we receive new energy to work more!
This Friday we
visited organization Cerību spārni. And this time it’s not easy to write about it. Not because
there’s nothing to say... The exact opposite - there’s so much, it’s
overwhelming. It’s hard to write because anything that we try to say about it
will not be enough. Because it’s incredibly amazing what several very strong
moms are doing in Sigulda together with people who think alike. Those are moms
that had to endure a lot. But they haven’t broken down under the pressure and
have created something so fantastic that there’s a natural instinct to bow your
head in front of them. There is a homely place in Sigulda where parents can
bring their little and not so little children with special needs, while they
themselves are working or regaining strength. Here professional teachers work
with the kids in different creative workshops, starting with drawing, sand
therapy and weaving, ending with leather processing, sewing, making candles.
Here are also physiotherapy classes - everything that is necessary, beautiful,
exciting is here! People of Sigulda are really lucky to have this place,
because there aren’t that many places like this in Latvia.
Team of Cerību spārni has also created a wonderful place where new moms that are
in a crisis situation can seek refuge, learn skills and how to stand on their
own two feet in life. Seeing how and what happens there was a pleasure for eyes
If you are near
Sigulda, definitely visit the charity shop Sociālais
uzņēmums “Pogotava” (social
enterprise), where you can buy great items created by people with special
needs. We got so excited that we wanted to buy half of the items! :) We suggest
to follow Cerību spārni also in Facebook to be the first one to know about a special
event that will take lace very soon!
