Scouts in Humanitarian Response for Ukraine
Since the early days of the war in Ukraine, young people in Scouting mobilised immediately and volunteered around the clock. This helped ensure that Ukrainian families had access to basic necessities such as food, water, shelter, clothes, and protection after fleeing the war. This was especially apparent in Poland, Romania, Hungary, Moldova, Lithuania, Czechia, Latvia, Slovakia, and Ukraine.
Under a regional partnership with UNICEF, "UAct: Scouts in Humanitarian Response for Ukraine”, these nine National Scout Organizations humanitarian activities ranged from providing relief at borders and refugee centres to psychosocial first aid and integration into summer camps, local Scout groups, and host communities.
