PwC Latvia has been actively involved in supporting social events, including financing associated with children’s health and well being. Our 19 years’ experience in Latvia and our activities in the area of corporate responsibility demonstrate the importance of long term cooperation and active participation in such projects. We are confident that a joint effort can achieve a greater change in society, and so we have set up a working group in the region for the purpose of exchanging knowledge and experience, enabling our people to take part in various socially responsible events.
We have made financial contributions towards annual summer camps and Christmas events. We feel happy about the events organised by the fund that give the children unforgettable impressions. At Christmas we visited the children’s department of the social care centre “Ezerkrasti”, where the Latvian Orphan Children’s Fund was organising one of their Christmas events. The genuine joy on the children’s faces about the specially prepared performances and presents is etched on our memory, along with the poems, songs and dances diligently prepared by the children themselves.
We have made financial contributions towards the acquisition of medical equipment and for doctors’ training and experience exchange purposes. Our managing partner, Ahmed Sharkh, visited the State Cardiology Centre for Children, where Prof. Aris Lacis, H.M.D. kindly demonstrated newly acquired medical equipment, introduced us to the Cardiology Centre staff, and gave us the opportunity to see some of the hospital patients and their parents.
Each Christmas the organisation “Ruki” visit large and low-income families in Latgale to regale them with presents purchased from corporate donations and with gifts made by corporate employees individually.
Thanks to many of our employees willing to give blood, we asked the State Blood Donor Centre to send a medical bus over to our office. The event was supported by many of our employees as well as their relatives and friends.
We willingly responded to the appeal of Riga City Animal Shelter “Lici” for help, and procured basic necessities for their animals. We helped with newspapers and cardboard boxes as well as blankets, bowls and other daily necessities. Among our people are individual supporters who visit the shelter in order to walk the dogs or to help the shelter with daily chores.

In addition to financially backed projects, PwC also offers professional advice and experience as a donation. One of such donations involved advising the Children’s Hospital Fund on VAT overpayment issues affecting the Parental Home project.
Our cooperation with the organisation “Daili padomi” has developed into a series of events devoted to discussions on various topics. PwC has volunteered its premises for such discussions, gathering pensioners and the younger generation alike. The first event of this kind took place on 4 September 2010 as part of the White Night Art Forum, where discussions about life were held, followed by affairs of the heart discussed on 14 February 2011.

Caring about the environment, each year PwC people go and clean up a particular area. We led a group of small pupils from Riga Valdis Zalitis Primary School to clean up the banks of the Marupite. Our families and children cleaned up the Children’s Clinical University Hospital, where we also planted a rose bush and a tree during the Spring Bee.
PwC supports Earth Hour, a global event organised by the World Wildlife Fund that involves lights being turned off for one hour to raise awareness of the need to take action on climate change. Relatives and friends are also invited to take part in the event and to think of some original performances by candlelight. The aim of the event is to express support for using environmentally friendly energy in everyday life. PwC supports this event worldwide.
