Together For All

Our story...

As more and more refugees arrived to Europe during the summer of 2015, voices of xenophobia became increasingly louder. That was when Michel and Amandine thought about changing things and started a private clothing drive for refugees. Michel henceforth encouraged his friends on Facebook to donate. This call for action went viral to the point that over 15'000 people had been reached by the action, making it possible to collect nearly 40 tons of clothes. But it was not only the bulks of donations that surprised them. Rather the vigour and enthusiasm of the more than 200 volunteers convinced them to found an A.S.B.L. to organise other punctual campaigns in the future.

The association is named after Narin, a Syrian girl who, despite her escape from Cobane to Luxembourg by foot, has kept an appetite for life that is almost contagious.

"The goal of this association is to promote and protect the individual right to an equal access of possibilities irrespective of the nationality, gender, religion, sexual orientation or physical abilities of a person."
