About Latvia

Latvia gained independence from the former Soviet Union in September 1991. From 1991 on, Latvia has been experiencing a transition period, from state-controlled economy to market economy. As with many Eastern European countries, Latvia has thousands of orphan children, most of which are social orphans. These children are victims of abuse and/or the financial situation in Latvia. Orphan Outreach has over 8 years of experience with ministry partners in Latvia. Latvia is a beautiful Eastern European country that has many Christian elected officials.

Orphan Outreach Mission Trip Baggage Policy

All mission trip participants are responsible for the cost of their checked baggage. When traveling internationally, most airlines allow passengers to carry two checked bags at 50 pounds maximum. The cost of checked baggage depends on where you are traveling and your status with the airline. For the most up to date baggage allowances and fees, please check with each airline you are traveling on.

Occasionally we may ask trip participants to carry humanitarian aid and items needed for ministry in country. To save the cost of having to pay for the second bag on the return flight home, you can stuff a bag inside your other bag. Please ask before leaving behind a bag in your country of service.
