Get involved for people in need

Monday 3 January 2022

Caritas Luxembourg is currently looking for a wide range of volunteers:

VOLUNTEERING FOR WINTER ACTION 2021/2022

The crisis affects more and more vulnerable people in our society. Therefore, we are reaching out for volunteers who can, by their presence, support the professional team in the meal distribution to the homeless persons and actively participate in the actions set up in the framework of the Winter Action 2021/2022. The volunteer team of the three organizations grouped under the Dräieck ASBL plays an important role. Their involvement alongside the professionals on the ground for the beneficiaries is the condition to guarantee the smooth running of this humanitarian action. In addition, the warm and friendly atmosphere that the volunteers contribute to create by their dynamism and motivation also encourages those who need it. We consider this human element as one of the pillars of a successful welcome and support.

VOLUNTEERING IN KOPSTAL

In Kopstal, Caritas Accueil et Solidarité runs the Centre de l'Oseraie, which aims to support people in difficulty by offering them accommodation and an introduction to the labour market. The "Weidendall" project welcomes people who are able to activate their employment. Its "Gardening" activity has been developing well since 2019 and currently employs about 20 people. Two additional activities were launched at the beginning of 2021: maintenance of green spaces and cutting firewood. Having an occupation allows all these people not only to fight boredom, to get out of isolation, to learn about life in a group, but above all to show others and especially themselves that they are capable of doing things and thus to feel valued. At the same time, they acquire new skills and stabilise their psycho-social situation.

We are looking for volunteers who would like to come once a week to

  • Support the activation of the beneficiaries in the cultivation of fruit and vegetables
  • Sew bags for firewood
  • Process garden produce in autumn (develop recipes for vegetables and fruit)

We welcome any suggestions you may have about the garden, the forest and cooking.
