Virtual Postlaf 2021

Sport and Solidarity! Help people on the street in Luxembourg to take care of their health.

In the current health context, the 2021 edition of the Postlaf will not be able to take place physically. On 14 March, a completely virtual Postlaf will therefore take place, organised by the Amicale POST Luxembourg with the City of Luxembourg and POST Luxembourg. It will not only be a sporting challenge, but also a solidarity action to raise funds to support Caritas Luxembourg.

In concrete terms, how will this happen?

  • The race will take place individually, at the location of your choice.   
  • The distance to be covered will be a minimum of 10 kilometres.   
  • Registration is FREE, but compulsory. Registration will be open from Monday 1 February until Sunday 7 March 2021 on https://www.rtl.lu/sport/postlaf.
  • POST Luxembourg will pay 5 € to Caritas Luxembourg for each participant having sent back his result. Your result must be sent on the website https://www.rtl.lu/sport/postlaf. You will be able to add a photo during your effort with your race number. The 3 most original photos will be rewarded.   
  • POST Luxembourg will send a gadget to each participant as well as to each person who has supported the project of Caritas Luxembourg with a donation. A draw with several prizes, including a weekend in Hamburg for 2 people, will also be organised among the people who have made a donation to support the Caritas Luxembourg project.

Donations can only be made to the CCPLULL account of POST Luxembourg :

The money raised will enable people living on the street in Luxembourg to benefit from health care. This project goes beyond simple nursing care such as treating a wound. It is first of all about gaining the trust of people living on the street, raising their awareness of the different health and hygiene issues that concern them, getting them to pay attention to the signs their body is sending them, gradually restoring their confidence in the health system and, if they wish, accompanying them in their efforts to seek care. The community health project team works with a network of associations, social workers, doctors and other health professionals. Indeed, access to care for homeless people is often strewn with hurdles: some people no longer have social security coverage, others have never had it, some homeless people are afraid of finding themselves in a crowded waiting room, some professionals are afraid that homeless people will drive away their other clientele, etc. The mission of the Caritas Luxembourg team is to create all the conditions for the homeless person to be able to receive treatment in complete serenity, to regain confidence in the medical system and to want to continue their medical treatment.

Caritas Luxembourg has just published a position paper in which it calls for people living in the most precarious situations, in Luxembourg and worldwide, to be taken into consideration in access to vaccination. Find the position paper below!
