Would you just ignore them and pretend as if they were not there? Or would you give them enough help to keep their nose above the water? Latvia is one of Sweden's neighbouring countries and even if they are a member of EU is the situation for many poor Latvians very tough.

Although Latvia's economy is rising again, many poor families and pensioners find it difficult to pay for their expenses and they have to struggle to survive.
