Message from GirlGuiding New Zealand I, along with most of NZ, have watched the TV images of the bush fires across the ditch in horror. It is a situation that most of us find incomprehensible however we can imagine the impact would be far reaching. The Board, staff and members of GirlGuiding NZ send our thoughts and prayers to you and your members, especially those in the state of Victoria. Warmest Regards Jenny Burrow (National President GGNZ) Message from Girl Guides Canada My thoughts and those of our Guiding family in Canada have turned to you and your fellow Aussies as we hear of the terrible devastation and deaths caused by the fires raging in Victoria. I do hope you are safe and that the impact on Girlguiding Australia has not been too significant and that you have been spared much of the disaster. We read of the influx of support to Australia from many sources and many corners of the world. Please let me know if there is anything Girl Guides of Canada can be doing to assist you at Girlguiding Australia at this difficult time….we would be most pleased to lend any support we can. Take good care and please let me know how you are doing. Warm regards, Myrtle Myrtle G.

Please know that our prayers and thoughts are with all those Victorians who have lost families, friends, relatives and property.
