During the Christmas charity campaign the judges and employees donated 666.40 lats which were transferred as a gift to the account of the Kuldiga region Pelci special elementary boarding school – the center for development.
There are 193 children with special needs in the Pelci special elementary boarding school, eight of them spend their days in the wheelchair. The donation of the judges and the employees will be useful for the acquisition of teaching aids what will make it easier for the children to understand and study the school programs.
The tradition of the Christmas charity campaign started in the Supreme Court in 2002 when the donations of the judges and the employees – books, toys, stationary and children’s clothes went to the joint campaign organized by the Latvian television. In the following years upon the suggestion of the Children’s Foundation the court supported separate institutions by transferring the donated money to their accounts. Donations of the Supreme Court have gone to the Rudzati special boarding school, the Ergeme children’s home, the Kraslava children’s special rehabilitation center “Musmajas”, the Saldus region children and family center “Rukitis”, and last year – the Cesis region Raiskums sanatorium elementary boarding school.
