The Red Cross is holding its annual collection month throughout April.
Some 2,000 volunteers from the Red Cross are visiting homes and businesses all this month to collect donations for the organisations annual charity drive. This year the will go towards several projects, including the Perspectives programme to help young adults and a project to help victims of the conflict in Ukraine.
The Perspectives project is geared towards helping young people in Luxembourg between the ages of 18 and 26 with social problems. Under the terms of the project, youngsters have to agree to show a willingness to change and to define objectives for their personal and professional life. The service helps them find housing and provides them with coaching and to find appropriate work.
In Ukraine, the Red Cross is helping renovate shelters in Kharkiv and north Donetsk for refugee families who have fled the armed conflict in the east of the country--it is estimated that around one million people have been displaced by the fighting.
Donations to these causes can also be made via bank transfer (to account: CCPL LU52 1111 0000 1111 0000 marking the transfer “Mois du Don 2015”) or by using a credit card to pay via the Red Cross website.
