A Bazar to support young people who are suffering (19 & 20 November)

24 October 2022

The Red Cross Bazar will take place on 19 and 20 November from 10am to 6pm at the Glacis. The proceeds will be used to support actions in favour of young people in Luxembourg and around the world.

In the great tradition of the Bazar, visitors will be able to find handicrafts, designs, and vintage items (jewellery, small furniture, household articles, toys for children…), delicacies (salmon, cheese, home-made jams and sweets, and the food village…) or second-hand clothes at reduced prices, without forgetting the presence of the Kleeschen on Sunday at 3 pm.

In addition to these fun activities, visitors will be able to meet several teams and young people from the Luxembourg Red Cross. All of them, in their respective fields, help and support young people in overcoming the difficulties they face. Through several animations and exhibitions, it will be possible to understand the activities proposed and their method of intervention.

Support is provided to young people and their families both in Luxembourg and around the world. The humanitarian interventions of the Luxembourgish teams of the Red Cross Humanitarian Aid aim at relieving as much as possible the families directly affected by the consequences of a natural disaster, a conflict or a pandemic.

In addition to a conference “Against gender-based violence”, Humanitarian Aid will offer one of the highlights of the Bazar: the escape game “Humanitarians in the field”. Through this simulation of a humanitarian deployment in wartime, you will discover many notions of international humanitarian law.

The least we can say is that young people are under pressure. Though they should be able to think freely about their future, the pandemic, the consequences of global warming or the conflict in Ukraine have followed one another in recent years. And each time, it is a future that is darkened. Our teenagers and young adults have to learn to live with these situations, and with the consequences they can have for them – directly, or indirectly, by affecting their families or friends. The Red Cross is there to help them… and that is exactly why we have decided, once again this year, to honour them during the Bazar.
