I Want to Help Refugees

Gribu palīdzēt bēgļiem (I Want to Help Refugees - GPB) began as a Facebook group in September 2015, gathering people who wanted to actively help refugees arriving in Latvia largely from the war-torn Syria and Iraq. In April 2016, GPB was registered as an association with the aim of providing practical support to refugees in the process of socio-economic integration. Nowadays the organisation not only provides practical support to asylum seekers and refugees, but also works to raise public and political awareness of their rights and needs, and advocates for the necessary improvements in the integration system to promote the inclusion of newcomers in the Latvian society.
