Rovers help families rebuild houses as cyclone hits Bangladesh
While still in a fight against covid-19, families living in Gopalgani District, in Dhaka, suffered another blow after cyclone Amphan hit the coastal towns and cities of India and Bangladesh. But Rovers living in the areas came to the rescue and removed the debris.
Despite no power and communication lines, the Scouting spirit of these Rovers is not hampered as they started helping the families, repairing their houses and building temporary shelters. More than 90 people have been killed and tens of thousands left homeless.
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 channelled directly to support National Scout Organizations.
