Since the declaration of the COVID-19 Pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) back in March 2020, the Kuwait Boy Scouts Association immediately announced placing all the potentials and facilities of the Association including its hotel at the disposal of the Ministry of Health and all relevant government bodies in support of measures taken by the government to combat the pandemic. 

 

In line with its interest in social partnership, the Association welcomed volunteers to provide community members with opportunities to participate in fighting Coronavirus pandemic. It is worth mentioning that 70 male and female volunteers of different nationalities joined these efforts aimed at tackle COVID-19. The Scouts cleaned and sterilized its buildings in cooperation with their partners and organized a seminar with the theme “How to Overcome the New Coronavirus”.

 

During the month of Ramadhan, Kuwaiti Scouts showed great enthusiasm in community partnership after concluding a twining agreement with “takatof volunteer team”. The agreement included a number of charitable projects among them to provide 250 Iftar meals throughout the entire Ramadhan period. Members of the Association distributed those meals within a plan that covered all areas of the country.

 

Since the outbreak of Covid-19, Scouts around the world have been responding to the needs of their communities on an individual and group level from awareness-raising to deliveries of essential items. World Scouting set up a Covid-19 Emergency Response Fund, where you can donate to help Scouts continue supporting their communities in need. All funds will be channeled directly to support National Scout Organizations.
