The Boy Scouts of Bahrain participated with 200 scout leaders and volunteers in the national campaign under the slogan “together for the safety of Bahrain” to support woman and Bahraini families in cooperation with the Supreme Council for Woman. Scouts played a field role in delivering in-kind contributions, including health and consumable requirements and basic needs, to households of female breadwinners and families of frontline healthcare workers.
