Scouts and Guides contributing to refugee support activities in their local communities in Europe (10): a story from Klagenfurt, Austria:

“We just wanted to make these children smile and laugh again”, says Monika, from the Kärtner Pfadfinder und Pfadfinderinnen (the Association of Scouts and Guides of Carinthia, a member of Pfadfinder und Pfadfinderinnen Österreichs).

“That’s why we have joined a group of other volunteers from different local community organisations, including Caritas Kärnten, the Hilfswerk Kärnten and the Carinthian branch of the Muslimische Jugend Österreichs.”

“We are happy that Scouts, Guides and Leaders from different Carinthian Scout and Guide Groups make available their time, enthusiasm and skills running regular afternoons of playing, drawing, and other activities with children and young people of refugee families in one of the refuges centres in Klagenfurt, capital city of Carinthia.”

If you are involved in a similar refugee support activity, let us know and we will share it, too!
