In view of the most recent developments in their neighbouring country, Związek Harcerstwa Polskiego (ZHP), the National Scout Organisation in Poland, has launched an appeal to raise funds for their brother and sister Scouts in the Ukraine:

"Solidarity with Ukraine" - Fund-raising Appeal Launched by ZHP

“Solidarity with Ukraine” – ZHP’s Fund-raising Appeal

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Scouting!

The recent events in Kyiv and many other places in the Ukraine brought a tragic return of situation – people died, weapons were used openly. Despite the news of the last days we cannot predict if and when a stable and peaceful solution will be adopted.

Regardless of what will happen in the great history and politics at this very moment there are people suffering in the Ukraine. Our brothers and sisters – the Ukrainian Scouts – are trying (often acting on the front line) to help actively or try organising this help.

Dear Friends!

Each of us made the promise that we will carry the help to others. Today is a time when this help is needed by Ukrainian citizens, including our brothers and sisters – the Ukrainian Scouts. I urge Scouts and Leaders to provide all your help in contributing to a fund-raising campaign organised by the HQs of The Polish Scouting and Guiding Association (ZHP) in favour of the Ukrainian Scouts.. The collected funds will be used for the Scouts assisting in helping all victims of the current tragic situation.

It is important that actions undertaken for our friends in the Ukraine would correspond to the real needs of these difficult moments and reach the people who organise the help locally. This is why I request you to consult with the International Commissioner of ZHP should you consider undertaking any additional actions in this field. ZHP will be in close contact with both the European Scout Region and the Eurasian Scout Region during this action.

Just a few days after the World Thinking Day / Founder’s Day on 22 February let us show that solidarity and support for World Scouting also have a practical dimension and that we are able to effectively show our willingness to help.

Chief Guide of ZHP
