WAGGGS launched its Emergency Appeal to help those fleeing Ukraine on the 3rd of March and hundreds of you have donated from all over the world. We have watched in awe as you have given what you can to support the Ukrainian refugees. This appeal has raised £166,000 to date - more than any previous appeal. Thank you. We have now closed our campaign as the need of our Member Organisations has been met.
Our Member Organisations are now able to apply for support from these funds to deliver much needed services on the ground. We will continue to update you on the work of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts throughout this conflict and how your donations help deliver this critical work.
If you are interested in supporting other areas of WAGGGS work and the future of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts there are other ways you can support. Read on to learn more about the projects and programmes that you can help fund.
For every girl and any girl
From a one-off donation, in memory or legacy gift to becoming a member of one of our dedicated special interest Friends Groups, there are many ways you can help us support Girl Guides and Girl Scouts worldwide.
With your contributions, we can provide leadership training, a variety of life enriching international opportunities and much more.
