Families are living in severe poverty in Europe today.
Hope for Latvia works with families in the Baltic state of Latvia to enable them to break the cycle of poverty in their lives through practical and sustainable support.
The situation is stark; outside of the tourist centre of Riga live hundreds of thousands of people excluded from participating in society because of poverty. Families are struggling to survive in single rooms without adequate heating and suitable sanitation. Generations of Latvians are currently growing up with dreams of a better future but with few opportunities to realise them.
