On the 11th of March, at the University of Latvia (UL) Aula Magna, a concert “For a Free Ukraine” took place to express the University of Latvia's support for Ukrainian people - students and researchers who study at the UL and are cooperating with researchers of the UL. It was possible to make donations at the concert, which were administered by the University of Latvia Foundation. 

The donations could be made in person (by cash or payment card) and by calling the donation telephone numbers as well as on the www.ziedot.lu.lv webpage. A total amount of 2 949 EUR was donated. 

These donations will help support students from Ukraine studying at the UL by applying tuition fee discounts as well as allowing for them to stay free of charge at the UL student hotels and ensuring psychological support. Furthermore, support will be given to researchers from Ukraine who have come to Latvia to collaborate with the UL research groups allowing them and their families to stay here longer. 

It is still possible to make donations:
