Given the scale of needs of the most vulnerable people, the Red Cross is committed to finding relevant and innovative solutions to meet vital needs. Its specialized services contribute to improving the quality of life of vulnerable people and promote social integration.
How is your donation used?
Thanks to your donation, you help people in precarious situations to escape marginalization and regain dignity. While social insecurity is constantly increasing, covering basic needs such as food and clothing has become a major challenge for the most fragile. Through its eight social grocery stores and Cloakrooms, the Red Cross directly supports people at risk of poverty.
The need for services for people experiencing social exclusion and homelessness, such as the Abricoeur service, is vital. "Wanteraktioun" welcomed more people than ever at its last edition, which shows the growing needs of the poor.
