Dear Friends of Afiliatys,

Our team is pleased to present interesting partnerships and wonderful new events, amongst which Darkness Into Light, that we are proud to support.

The Darkness Into Light initiative began in 2009, when a bereaved couple in Dublin rose at 4h00 to walk from darkness into the dawn in memory of their son, who had been lost to suicide.

The event has grown exponentially since then – from 400 people in Dublin’s Phoenix Park to an event which will be celebrated this year in over 200 towns and cities worldwide including Luxembourg and The Netherlands – for the first time. 

Symbolically the walk represents the therapeutic counselling journey.  It sparks conversation about the importance of mental health and wellbeing in all our lives.

The 2nd  Brussels Darkness Into Light walk takes place this Saturday, May, 11th at  at 05h00.  It will be a 5km walk at Parc du Cinquantenaire.

Commissioner Phil Hogan is patron of the Brussels event.

There are a number of ways to support this action:

In 2018, 590 attended the Brussels walk and together raised €58,016. The funds were shared between Pieta House Ireland and two associations in Belgium, Centrum ter preventie van zelfdoding and Centre du prévention du suicide,all dealing with mental health and suicide.


We wish you a very beautiful week and a wonderful 9th of May!
