On December 10th and 11th a strong storm system swept the southern United States causing wide spread death and destruction HELP US SUPPORT Warm Hearts and Toes for Tornado Survivors in Arkansas, Tennessee, Missouri and Kentucky HERE


World Cares Center (WCC) was created in the wake of 9-11 to help organize and train volunteers and to give community leaders the critical support they need to help their neighborhoods recover from a disaster and be better prepared for the next. WCC believes resiliency is best promoted when all community members are prepared to respond to disasters together, so working together to provide training coordination and support to the community is a topmost priority. As we increasingly see our communities facing the “next one” more frequently, our work of organizing volunteer leadership, training and protecting our frontline responders for disasters is becoming more critical than ever.

Your donation will enable World Cares Center to support communities in crisis locally, nationally, and internationally while we also look ahead to the future. This includes:


  • In Lviv, World Cares Center delivered “MedPut’s” loosely translated as Medical Clinics in six refugee camps providing medical care for all refugees including specialty care for women and children.
  • WCC also set up Emotional Resiliency Workshops for Families and Children which provided healing journals for children and guides for parents translated into Ukrainian to help child survivors manage their trauma and grief. Close to 1,000 kits have so far been distributed.
  • WCC’s monthly Ukraine Service Providers Roundtable provide a source of support and connection to resources for providers.
  • In 2023 WCC plans to work with local NGO’s and Universities to provide train the trainer sessions to expand our Resiliency work by empowering Ukrainian student and provider to deliver the program. We will be bringing along a trained medical team
