Call for volunteers: Winter Action 2021/2022

21 October 2021

The Winter Action (Action Hiver) campaign will be jointly organised by Caritas Luxembourg, the Luxembourg Red Cross and Inter-Actions from 1 December 2021 until 31 March 2022, to help the most needy in our society during the cold season.

The initiative will offer shelter at night to homeless people at the emergency shelter at the Findel. The educational team and volunteers will take over during the day, to welcome and distribute hot meals every day to people affected by the cold.

 When and how to get involved?

  • Day centre: from 11.30 a.m. to 4 p.m. for lunch and the break room provided for our beneficiaries, every day: preparing and distributing meals, supporting the educational team for specific activities, etc.
  • Night shelter: from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm for the evening meal and from 6:30 am to 9:00 am for the breakfast service, every day: preparing and distributing meals, distributing of sanitary supplies, supporting the educational team, etc.
  • Field coordination from 8am to 11am on Saturdays to support the team in managing lockers.

Why get involved?

The Covid-crisis is affecting more and more vulnerable people in our society. Therefore, we are calling for volunteers who can, by their presence, support the professional team in the distribution of meals to the homeless and actively participate in the actions set up within the framework of the Winter 2021/2022 Action campaign. The volunteer team of the three actors grouped under the Dräieck ASBL plays an important role. Their mobilisation alongside the professionals in the field for the beneficiaries is the condition to guarantee the smooth running of this humanitarian initiative. In addition, the warm and friendly atmosphere that the volunteers help to create through their dynamism and motivation also helps those in need. We consider this human aspect to be one of the pillars of successfully helping and following up of those in need.
