For over 150 children and teens with disabilities from every corner of Latvia in the Association for Latvian Children with Motor Impairments, the first week of January culminated with a Christmas event at the Railway Museum in Riga, which included a concert and a variety of creative workshops. The organisers also invited children from state social care centres “Baldone”, “Pļavnieki”, “Rīga” and “Teika” – for an attendance of almost 400.

During the festive event, attendees participated in creative workshops guided by Christmas elves, crafting greeting cards, decorations, and glazed gingerbreads. After the workshops, the children and teens enjoyed a musical performance called “Brīnumskapis” (Wardrobe of Wonders).  More...
