Scouting’s Humanitarian Response in UkraineMarch 6, 2022
This past week we have seen the true strength and compassion of our global Scout Movement, as young people, volunteers, local Scout groups, BP Fellows, and National Scout Organizations around the world have rallied to support Scouts in Ukraine and their local efforts during the ongoing humanitarian crisis.
Thanks to the generosity of more than 1,100 donors from across the Scout Movement in partnership with the World Scout Foundation, we have reached the initial target of raising $100,000 to support humanitarian relief efforts in Ukraine. These funds will be directed to the National Organization of the Scouts of Ukraine to provide food, medicine, sleeping bags, and other necessary supplies, along with the coordination of psychological support for young people and communities impacted by the conflict.
We have now raised the target of the appeal to $250,000 to provide more urgent support. We are widening the scope of the effort to direct additional funds towards neighbouring National Scout Organizations in the region who have stepped forward to offer their support to the affected population.
Please consider making a donation to this effort and share the link with your friends, family and Scouting networks. More updates will be shared on the Scout Donation Platform appeal as the situation unfolds.
If your National Scout Organization wishes to donate a larger gift of more than $4,000 to the ongoing fundraising efforts, please contact your Regional Support Centre who can provide you with the necessarily information. All grants, regardless of their size, will be recognised in the donor list of the main project on the Scout Donation Platform.
