Easter present of medicines for Latvia’s underprivileged

02/04/2004

On April 2, Public Joint Stock Company Grindeks presented non-prescription medicines worth more than 12,000 lats to various public organisations and foundations. As part of the Easter gift, the medicines were transferred to the Latvian Red Cross, the Latvian Children’s Fund, the “Save the Children” organisation and the Riga Pensioners’ Association.

With the help of the aforementioned organisations, these medicines will be passed onto children’s homes, old people’s homes, boarding schools, centres for large families and elsewhere – that section of our society that is most in need of moral and material support on a day to day basis. The importance of such gifts of medicines is affirmed by the large number of letters of gratitude that the company receives from various public organisations.

The Easter gift includes vitamins, anti-cough and anti-cold preparations, because non-prescription medicines are the only ones that may be presented as a gift and issued without a doctor’s prescription.

Gifts of medicines are one of Grindeks’ traditional charitable works. Every year, the company allocates several tens of thousands of lats to charity both by supporting the publication of books in the field of medicine as well as the education of young specialists by issuing them with scholarships and awards.
