Anticipated opening of the Wanteraktioun
Monday 22 November 2021
Due to the weather forecast of temperatures around 0 degrees, the Ministry of Family, Integration and the Greater Region and its partner Dräieck asbl, of which Caritas Luxembourg is a member, have decided to launch the Wanteraktioun (WAK) earlier.
The Wanteraktioun is a humanitarian action whose aim is to prevent homeless people from falling victim to hypothermia during periods of extreme cold. It takes place in the multifunctional emergency structure in Findel and starts in general on 1 December and ends on 31 March.
- The night shelter will be open from 7.15pm on Tuesday 23 November.
- The day shelter will be open to beneficiaries from noon on 24 November. The organisation of the accommodation and the supervision of the beneficiaries are ensured by the Dräieck asbl, which has been managing the Wanteraktioun since 1 January 2021. This association is made up of the three organisations Caritas Luxembourg, the Luxembourg Red Cross and Inter-Actions.
- The field coordination will be open on 23 November for the registration of beneficiaries from 11:30 to 16:00.
