Hope in Action
“We are all helpers. If you are affected by COVID – 19 outbreaks and need assistance, we can help.”
In these difficult times of the pandemic, isolation, lockdowns, and fear, let us remember the thousands of people around the world who have been through similar circumstances for a very long time now, due to natural or manmade calamities. They are always in need and we can help them. As the virus spread, we are on the front lines. This is what we do. This is who we are.
We have been working tirelessly to support those affected with medical supplies, financial assistance, food packages, and hygiene kits. We are doing what we do best. Working with people directly in the fight we can’t do it alone. We are helping people survive COVID-19 on every level. Financially, medically, nutritionally, mentally, and spiritually.
At AMEDDIAS, we believe each and every one of us should have a dignified life. The journey began in Luxembourg in 2007 on a small scale by a group of highly motivated members: Professors, lawyers, journalists, and social workers, who all had the passion for Information and Communication. By setting specifics goals, comprehensive plan, and clear visions based on providing help to the needy and poor families within the country and poverty-stricken areas of the word. The association offers solutions in times of crisis in terms of Information and Communication for several fields. Here, in medical care, education, food aid, poverty relief, and famine relief.
Our passions stem from a sense of injustice that anyone should be locked out of living a decent, dignified life, so we work to inspire social change.

How do our association works?
From our association born our new website: http://annuaire-solidaire.lu/.
This website allows each one to find information easily about:
- Food parcels;
- Masks, services, and help for Covid-19.
When you select one category, you can access a list of organizations, restaurants, and or marauds, in which works people and volunteers that offers food and drinks (i.e. the local Green Olive Restaurant or even the international Mac Do. Sainte Marthe who gives daily unsold food).
À quoi servira la collecte
Products are donated. They are then collected, sorted, and distributed to a network of community partners i.e organizations, charities, projects, and services that support those of us who are struggling.
We collect unsold food from restaurant, and also from Mc Donald's, we collect also new, unused, and in-date toiletries, hygiene basics, beauty, and personal care and household cleanings essentials - such as deodorant, shower gel, shampoo, make-up, nappies, loo roll, laundry detergent, and surface cleaner. If you need them and use them, then it is likely someone else needs and uses them too.
your donation will help us to :
- buying of hydroalcoholic gel bottles, masks, and other personal protective equipment for our volunteers;
- acquisition of bags or packaging to constitute food parcels for the poorest people who have recourse to food aid.
Our process goes in five steps:
- We collect: People and businesses in the locality collect and donate products. Brands and retailers also give us unused or repackaged products. We also distribute for some buy one/give one brand.
- We Sort: Our volunteers collect and sort donations.
- We Box up: Products are repackaged and sorted according to the different needs of our community partners.
