"Could I have another ice cream, please?" This was the most frequently asked question by patients of Riga 1st Hospital, ward 17, at an event organised by Hospiss LV volunteers on 19 August to support seriously ill patients. Delicious pastries, savoury and sweet eclairs, fruit, pies, ice cream, juices, chocolate bars - it was all there in the "Festive Table in Hospitals" trolleys. After the refreshments, a concert by the musician Roberto Meloni took place in the hospital courtyard, featuring well-known and well-loved songs in Latvian, Italian and Russian. The music and the positive energy of everyone involved also led to dancing.
Patients' smiles were the biggest reward for our team volunteers!
Sincere thanks to Hospiss LV supporters Rāmkalni, H2O Banketi, Divi Labi, Brunch Garden, Eklērnīca Raunas Dārzs, all volunteers and Riga City Council Welfare Department
