The International Scout and Guide Fellowship (ISGF) express their heartfelt condolences to all those who have lost their near and dear ones. We stand united in Scouting and Guiding spirit with all those who have suffered in tragedy as well and offer our sympathies and support in this hour of need.
The ISGF World Committee proposes that it will collect money for the purpose of supporting Scouts and Guides who have lost equipment during this terrible act of nature. This support will be in the form of the replacement of uniforms, badges, books, training aids and other equipment as requested by the Associations within the money collected by the World Bureau. Contact will be made with the local Scout and Guide Associations over the next couple of months and our assistance offered to re-establish their organizations as an aid to the youth of the country.
The World Committee will commit one thousand (1000) euro’s to each from the International Development Fund on behalf of our membership to initiate this action.
National Scout and Guide Fellowships and individuals are invited to forward further money to the ISGF World Bureau identifying the money is for the Haiti Youth Rebuild Fund.
As Chairman and on behalf of our World Committee I guarantee that 100% of the contributions will be used for the deserving youth movements. Any other operational costs will be carried within the ISGF working budget and World committee members. The Fund will be coordinated by the International Development Team and updates will be published on the ISGF website.
