HELP US (covid -19)

HELP US (covid -19)

Given the current drastic situation, many of our users with temporary or precarious contracts are at danger of having their contracts terminated or not having them renewed. Their income will suffer greatly and they will be unable to meet their expenses. The registered not-for-profit Associación Manos Abiertas, asbl (A.M.A) is launching an urgent appeal to help the most vulnerable make ends meet. We would like to help them pay part of their rent, utility bills and everyday groceries and we are now appealing to the general public to help us by putting aside the money you might have spent on a coffee, a glass of wine, a cinema ticket, meal out, or even that little getaway you were unable to take, and transfer that amount to AMA’s account.

Also encourage your children and friends to be supportive. Any amount, however small, is a BIG help.

We can’t save lives like health care workers do but we can help ease the burden on the life of someone who has been economically impacted by this situation. And you can rest assured that, despite being isolated in your lockdown, you are helping in a BIG way.

Solidarity is our greatest reward and it’s the only possible way to make our way through the crisis that is affecting all of us in some way or another.

We estimate that 5000 euros would make a HUGE difference to the lives of so many. They need us! Please help. Thank you!

PwC Staff Day 2018 – Make a difference

On 14 September, AMA was one of the 48 Luxembourg associations that participated in the PwC staff Day.

 This gave us the opportunity to explain our project to PwC employees, to present our latest achievements and to share our experiences. There was even time to organise a Sevillanas workshop with the help of Victoria Villalba and Laura Supervielle.

It was fun … and useful: We recieved generous donations from the staff!

 Our deep thanks to PwC for their support to our small association.
