Scouts and Guides contributing to refugee support activities in their local communities in Europe (4): a story from Augsburg, Germany.

“Members and leaders of local Scout Groups in the Augsburg District of DPSG Bundesverband (one of the National Scout Associations in Germany, member of World Organization of the Scout Movement – WOSM) got actively involved in an existing local support project launched last year. Initiated by a group of eight friends in November 2014, the main objective of Übergepäck eines Flüchtlings. (“a refugee’s extra luggage”) is to show refugees and their families that members of the local community recognise their challenging situation and are offering them assistance.
