In view of the current refugee situation in Europe, the European Scout Committee of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) has issued the following message about the current refugee situation to National Scout Organisations and National Scout Associations in the European Region:
All of us have felt our hearts go cold when we saw the awful pictures of the suffering of refugees who have arrived from many destinations and have experienced many different situations – rejection, aggression and sometimes even hatred.
Many of us feel helpless, unable to deal with such a massive humanitarian crisis. Many refugees end up somewhere in Europe and many citizens have started different actions to support them – with basic needs (clothes, food, shelter), with help in the refugee applications and simply with kind, caring gestures so that they do not feel alone and criminalised for fleeing where they felt unsafe. Many of us have been looking for a way to help but are not sure where to start.
There is a clear need now for basic goods for the refugees who are still camping outside: clothes, rain jackets, backpacks, toothbrushes and diapers, baby food or toys for the children.
If you have any suggestions, if you have explored the topic with your Scouts, if you are supporting actions, if your Scouts are doing actions to help, please share the information with us so we can collect stories about all your actions and publish them, helping other Scouts be guided into supporting the actions of their communities, showing their Scout scarves and trying, with others, making this world a better place.
The existing Memorandum of Understanding between UN’s High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) and WOSM may help you in supporting your actions.
Rupert comes from Austria and is the Executive Assistant to the Regional Director. His responsibilities include internal and external communications and administrative assistance in Regional events.
European International Scout Camps – Summer 2017Based on information made available so far, the European Scout Region of the World Organization of the Scout Movemente (WOSM) has put together a (non-exhaustive) list of national jamborees organised during the summer of 2017 in Europe. Maybe one of these international camps is exactly what you were looking for?
