Neighbor helping neighbor, we know that you are a critical part of a community’s response and recovery. We all have to do our part, and World Cares Center (WCC) is here to make sure that we stay safe while doing so.

From 9/11 to the Haitian Earthquake to Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, along with every disaster in between, WCC stands behind and beside local volunteers, providing them with training, personal protective equipment, and support as we help survivors recover.

Support us as we continue our critical mission in reducing the harm, suffering and loss caused by disasters through the empowerment of underserved, at-risk communities.

With the help of our generous supporters and donors, in 2017, we were able to:

  • Train 220 local leaders from 10 communes within the Jeremie Region of southern Haiti
  • Train 810 community members in Cholera prevention
  • Distribute 750 family water filtration systems
  • Deliver access to clean water to 10,400 individuals for up to 10 years
  • Train 200+ volunteers and groups to safely clean up hurricane-damaged homes and support recovery efforts in Refugio, Bayport, Rockport, and Houston, Texas
  • Train 500+ local leaders, students, and volunteers to stand up volunteer reception centers and perform flood response operations
  • Distribute 1,500 personal protective, hygiene, and clean up kits to survivors and volunteers in impacted areas
  • Initiate community-led volunteer reception centers in the municipalities of Humacao and Toa Baja, Puerto Rico

Understanding the importance of strengthening disaster response efforts, WCC believes that by educating and supporting local leaders and volunteers, a community will be able to further its self-sufficiency and aim towards becoming resilient.

We hope that you will consider supporting our programs.

In addition to monetary donations, WCC regularly welcomes donations of the following items:

  • Laptops and tablets
  • Gallon size Ziplock bags
  • NIOSH-approved N-95 respirators
  • Latex gloves
  • Vented goggles
  • Coverall Tyvek suits
  • Sheetrock knives

On the basis of emerging disasters, we will provide updates on specific needs as they arise.
