Every Wednesday after the event, Lienīte shares her impressions in a common volunteer correspondence. This week we are republishing Lienīte's message, because she is the one who can best tell you about the emotions that are experienced during these few hours each week.
"On a beautiful Wednesday in August, we met again at Hospital 1. I think today was special, we enjoyed coffee, long walks and chats in the hospital's hangout area. Stories that make you see life in a different light, that make you stop, listen and be silent, because all the words in the world are superfluous. So many fates, lost people, caresses and simple presence. Important feelings are lost. Do you know how the hands of an almost blind person vibrate? You touch the knotted fingers, stroke the palm and feel the vibration, the hands reach out to you and do not let go, squeeze your fingers for fear that you will disappear... and whisper, "stay a little longer"... So vibrates misfortune intertwined with happiness, so vibrates sorrow intertwined with joy. And you yourself, perhaps unwittingly, become part of this vibration. All words are superfluous, only the breath and the vibration remain. Thank you Gunta, Santa, Sandra, Vivita and Dace for being with our patients today, listening to the stories and uniting in song. We had an unplanned wonderful time."
Thank you to Lienīte and our volunteers for your endless energy and big hearts! Thank you for bringing joy and festivity to the monotonous daily lives of palliative patients!
Support the campaign with your donation so that the festive table at the hospital will be richly set in the future!
