Monoplus: Asylum-Seekers

RCLuxVersion française ci-dessous

The International English-Speaking Catholic Community supports the work of the Luxembourg Red Cross with Persons seeking International Protection (asylum) in Luxembourg. We coordinate the volunteers for the distribution of meals and organise activities for mateneen-logo-colourresidents at different reception centres in Luxembourg and Strassen. Our initiative is called “Monoplus” and we benefit from the financial support of the Mateneen project of the Oeuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte.

Volunteers needed

We need volunteers to:

  • distribute meals
  • help residents learn French, English, Luxembourgish, German
  • accompany residents to cultural and social activities
  • assist residents to integrate into life in Luxembourg
  • provide support to children with their schoolwork
  • organise sporting and fitness activities
  • perform administrative tasks
  • any or all of the above

Volunteers distribute breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. Can you volunteer: (a) on a regular basis for the same meal service each week? or (b) on a flexible basis according to need? If so, please send an e-mail to John Coughlan ( indicating your availability and with your name and mobile number. A weekly rota is circulated combining both regular and occasional volunteers.

If you would like to propose, coordinate or volunteer for any other type of activity, please contact Marcella McCarthy (
