Latvian entrepreneurs target 5 million euro Ukraine donation drive

To help Ukraine fight against Russia’s aggression and, in effect, safeguard the peace of the whole Europe, a group of Latvia’s leading companies is uniting in an initiative called “Entrepreneurs for Peace”.

A large-scale fundraising campaign aims to raise EUR 5 million in a couple of days to back Ukraine. The help is needed now, and it is the private sector which can join its forces promptly to support values that Latvia holds dear — freedom, democracy, and the possibility to plan a safe future in the long term.

“Our aim is to provide the necessary help in an organised and centralised manner, including voluntary work carried out not only in Riga and Latvia but also on the border. We appeal to everyone to join forces to be able to react and provide help quickly and efficiently for only together we are a force and only together we may act fast. Our initiative is aimed at long-term targeted support,” reveals Ieva Driksna, spokesperson for “Entrepreneurs for Peace”, calling on entrepreneurs to form a united front.

“A few days ago, Latvia’s people began raising donations for the Ukrainian nation. Now, it is every Latvian company’s duty to join in to send help to those suffering from the warfare in Ukraine and to help its army fight for their country’s independence. The initial goal of the private sector is to raise at least 5 million euros. We call on entrepreneurs to talk to their employees and cut all non-essential expenses to support Ukrainians in their fight for peace. It is Ukrainians who now with their lives safeguard the peace of the whole Europe — conditions in which we — entrepreneurs — may exist. It is our duty to help,” say members of the “Entrepreneurs for Peace” movement.
