The online Zoom meeting on the 4th Anniversary of the Western Hemisphere (WH) Region on September 5, 2020 was a great success. More than 55 members from 14 countries were online and each WH country was invited to tell about their development or about an activity.
Mario Bertagnolio, liaison for WH Region from World Committee as well as Leny Doelman, Central Branch Coordinator were present and congratulated the region and wished them success with future developments.
It is just a symbolic milestone to remember the work every one of us carries out every day for the benefit of our communities and, most important, for the support of the groups of Scouts and Guides, who help to develop better human beings without expecting any reward.
