Speiderforbundene har nå avlyst alle nasjonale arrangementer og oppfordrer kretser og grupper til å avlyse alle aktiviteter der man samles fysisk, til og med 30. april.
Gildeledelsen oppfordrer gildene til å gjøre det samme og til å følge myndighetenes påbud, forbud og anbefalinger.
Dette vil dessverre blant annet berøre feiring av St. Georgs-dagen, men vi må alle delta i den nasjonale dugnad for å begrense spredning av korona-viruset.
MESSAGE FROM ANA MARIA MIDEROS, CHAIR OF THE WORLD BOARD
“We send our solidarity and thoughts in these challenging moments. This is now a time to take care, be at home. It is now a time to be safe. Together as individuals, and as an organisation, we unite as we face the impact of COVID-19.
As a Girl Guide or Girl Scout we are prepared to face difficulties with optimism, and inspire courage to others through hope and care. When faced adversity before, during times of war or natural disaster, we do it once more today. We are resourceful. We are creative. Let’s lead in taking positive actions like encouraging handwashing and good hygiene; helping those who face isolation by keeping up spirits and wellbeing; and by developing online games and adventures for children and families and much more.
As a Global Youth Movement, we are building a generation of responsible and resilient citizens ready to act in all circumstances. There are so many amazing initiatives already in place across our Member Organisations: let’s build on this momentum!
On a personal note, whilst we are in a state of national emergency in Peru, I value more than ever my family and the quality time that we can now spend together, but I am committed to every measure for the safety of our nation and the world.”
Keep well and safe,
Ana Maria Mideros
Chair, World Board
