Weesen-Elteren

Self-help group for grieving parents

Weesen-Elteren is an exchange and support group for parents who have lost a child. The group is open to all parents, regardless of the age of the deceased child and the cause of death, and welcomes them for as long as they feel the need. Whether they come alone or as a couple, sharing the experiences of others can help relieve the parents’ grief. Weesen-Elteren organizes monthly meetings as well as various activities throughout the year.

  1. LISTENING AND HELPING
  2. MONTHLY MEETINGS
  3. ACTIVITIES OFFERED EACH YEAR

Listening, showing, helping

Weesen-Elteren has three objectives:

  • To listen to parents and give them the opportunity to talk freely about their child;
  • To show parents that they are not alone in their grief;
  • To help parents accept their situation and gradually regain a taste for life.

Monthly meetings every last Wednesday of the month

The monthly meetings are prepared and conducted by parents who have also lost a child. They take place every last Wednesday of the month at 8 p.m. at the Red Cross headquarters at 44, boulevard Joseph II; L-1840 Luxembourg.
