Baltic Defence College supports the Association of Disabled Children, Youth and their Parents in organising a summer camp

In February, Baltic Defence College spouse club Baltspouses raised over 1600 Euros during the International Night event in order to support the Association of Disabled Children, Youth and their Parents in Tartu.

Throughout the years, Baltic Defence College has conducted several fund-raisings for charitable purposes. The tradition was also continued this year with the initiative and lead of Baltspouses. A raffle was held as part of the college’s annual International Night. The event offered a perfect opportunity to experience the cuisine, culture and customs of the nations represented at the college while also contributing to a charity.

Today, Baltspouses presented the charity representative Siiri Muuli a cheque for 1650 euros. The presentation took place at the Baltic Defence College. According to Mrs Muuli, the donation came as a huge surprise and they are extremely grateful for it. The profits of the charity will be of great help in organizing Association’s summer camp. 

This year, participants from 18 countries made generous donations to support the Association of Disabled Children, Youth and their Parents in Tartu with their summer camp activities. The raffle prizes were donated by the college’s nations and local sponsors. The generous supporters of the wonderful endeavour are Hotel Oceania Paris, Theatre Vanemuine, Dorpat Hotel, V Spa, Lux Express, Hotel Lydia, Polpo, Gunpowder cellar, Estonian National Museum, Hector Light, Sheriff Saloon, Hotel Sophia, McDonald’s, Vapiano, Fii restaurant, Click and Grow, Moone Flower Shop and Kvartal.

Baltspouses, formerly known as Baltgirls, first came together in 1999. The club offers the spouses a chance to get to know each other, share information, find people with same interests and help to find solutions to different needs in the community. Charitable projects constitute a very large and important part of the club's activities. Each year, a new charity is selected. Baltspouses have previously collected funds in support of several institutions including Tartu Children's Shelter, Tartu Emajõe School and Estonian Association of Parents of Children with Cancer.

Baltspouses are certain to continue the tradition and conduct similar charity projects in upcoming years. They are proud to make a difference in Tartu community.
