Call for volunteers: Winter Action 2022/2023

11 October 2022

The Winter Action (Action Hiver) 2022/2023 campaign is jointly organised by Caritas Luxembourg, the Luxembourg Red Cross and Inter-Actions to help the most needy in our society during the cold season.

The initiative will offer night-time accommodation to homeless people in the Findel emergency shelter. 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?

Homelessness affects 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 Action 2022/2023 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. We are looking for volunteers willing to commit regularly for the duration of the Winter Action.
