Girl Guides in Ottergrove District were tasked to think globally this year as the local Guides sponsored 69 children in a Liberian village.

The Guides packed up much-needed school supplies for the Liberian school, as well as individual gift bags containing small toys, games and personal hygiene items. Thanks go out for the work of the Girl Guides of Ottergrove and the generosity of their families.

These packages were sent in care of a not-for-profit medical aid mission, and hand delivered. The medical staff have now returned with stories, photos and videos of their trip, and will share with the Guides the difference their contributions will make for the village children in Liberia. It will be a great way for Girl Guides to see first hand the true impact of our work towards a better world.

The presentation takes place Tuesday, June 5 at Betty Gilbert Middle School’s gymnasium from 7 to 8 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. Members of the public are welcome to bring friends and neighbours to this celebration.
