WHAT DO WE DO?
Our fields of intervention
1- One-off food aid
Whether following a job loss or a convalescence extended, one-off food aid provided by our volunteers allows people who use this service to find peace necessary for the identification of lasting solutions to the problems they meet. The need for this type of back-up service is very real and the demand is constant.

2- School perseverance
In matters of school perseverance, SVP Saint-Luc intervenes at the root of the problem. The school dropout rate of children living below the low income threshold being higher, Operation Bonne Mine was created with the hope of beating this statistic. By this initiative, we come to the aid of families by reducing the pressure financial related to the start of the school year. We work closely with schools to help the perseverance of students who have made sustained efforts to improve over the year. These aim to strengthen their self-esteem in relation to their ability to learn, which encourages them to continue their studies.
º More than 50 young people helped each year

We believe everyone has the right to celebrate Christmas in dignity and joy, that is why the SVP Saint-Luc organizes every year a food drive to collect foodstuffs, toys and donations which allow many families to experience the end celebrations of a year with dignity.
º about 700 baskets, 250 bags of hygienic products, 300 bags of dry food, 700 boxes of juice, 500 toys, 400 baby items distributed annually to families by our team of volunteers thanks to your generosity.
