In collaboration with Assist Forward asbl on Saturday 4 March 2017, for the occasion of International Women’s day we will be hosting a gift collection event with the objective of assisting refugee women of 2 shelters with presents for the 8th of March.
Women and girls comprise nearly half of the population in the refugee shelters. Although there are a number of organiSations that work with them and assist them to the best extend possible, there are still things that we can do to help them integrate better.
Unlike last year, when the Garage Sale Donate a Gift initiative was organised, this year is being organised in a different way, with the aim being for everyone to enjoy! Unicorner, is happy to host Assist Forward for the organisation of the event, where a coffee and cake morning will be held, giving everyone the opportunity to donate a gift for a refugee lady along with a personal note (if you wish). Everyone will have a chance to meet and empower a refugee woman through a gift, and toast with crémant to professional successes.
The event is being held at 35 rue de Beggen in Luxembourg city, and will start at 10:30, ending at 14:30, with the peak expected to be around 12:30.
For those choosing to bring a gift, it should be new and of a value of at least €10. It can be toiletries, a piece of jewellery, a spring scarf, a gourmandise basket (with chocolate, cheeses, jam, etc.), cosmetics, a gift voucher, or other such items. The gifts do not need to be wrapped, it would be highly appreciated to bring them in a bag. The gifts will be distributed on 8 March, in a ceremony at one of the refugee shelters.
