Plast – Ukrainian Scouting Organization

Plast – Ukrainian Scouting Organization, with over 10,000 members in Ukraine alone, is a worldwide scouting movement that has reacted to the war against Ukraine in the only way it knows how, by utilizing a motto all young Ukrainian scouts learn, “Hotuys!,” which in English is “Be Prepared,” the motto each Girl Scout knows well. These scouts worldwide are living the Scout Oath and Promise by mobilizing an urgent and immediate extensive humanitarian aid effort. In addition to raising funds that go directly to provide medical and humanitarian aid to people in Ukraine, scouts in local branches of the U.S. are gathering donations of medical supplies and packing specialized personal first aid kits that are being shipped overseas and then distributed by local scouts in Ukraine. By partnering with Plast in this ongoing effort, Girl Scouts will learn how to reach out to their communities to gather donations of medical supplies, to pack essential medical supplies best suited to assist an individual when access to specialized emergency medical services may be delayed, to realize how people in a country an ocean away can be saved by each kit that is packed, and they can become ambassadors for Ukraine’s scouts by sharing their scouting knowledge to work together towards a better world. Each step, no matter how small or large, is progress towards alleviating the suffering of Ukrainian people caught in an unprecedented and destructive war. Plast is looking forward to working with each and every troop interested in this project, please direct your inquiries to: romana.kulchytsky@gmail.com
