On 1st of February the Latvian Bible Society finished its major fundraising campaign “My Advent Gift”. 1291 person in total donated 11 582 EUR.
As always 10 % from the total income were transferred to one institution for children, this time to the orphanage in Strazde (Talsi region). The Latvian Bible Society for several years has cooperated with this institution and it is good to see positive changes that has taken place in recent years in this institution because of funds of our supporters. Funds have been used to purchase computers, to create new playground and to renovate the room for medical nurse. 18-20 children permanently live there. Atmosphere is very friendly.
The rest of income we got during the campaign will be used to distribute Children Bibles and other books to various organizations who work for children. In total children will get 1413 books.
