Scouts and Guides contributing to refugee support activities in their local communities in Europe (7): a story from Croatia:

“Scouts from the local branches in Zagreb, Otok, Vinkovci, Vukovar and Slavonski Šamac of Savez izviđača Hrvatske (the National Scout Organisation in Croatia, member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement – WOSM) joined other volunteers from Hrvatski Crveni križ, Hrvatski Caritas and other civil society organisations of the country and helped set up more then 30 large tents as emergency temporary shelters to accommodate refugees near Beli Manastir.

All volunteering Scouts were well catered for and their contributions praised by the coordinating National Protection and Rescue Directorate and returned home after this mission, ready to help and make again available their skills.”
