Help Ukraine

Help Ukraine Now!

Our approach is to care for the body and mind, helping internally displaced refugees heal emotionally and physically, Lisa Orloff, Founder and President, World Cares Center.

World Cares Center conducts desperately needed healing art workshops with children and families in resettlement villages in L’viv Ukraine in concert with its mobile medical clinics. Lisa Orloff, President of World Cares Center is the editor of the healing journal for children and guide for parents, created with a team of Art Therapists. The guide is published in Ukraine and English and printed in Ukraine to support the local economy.

Our goal is to conduct train the trainer sessions with the medical and mental health students we have connected with during our initial deployment. We seek to raise funds to conduct the train the trainer sessions in concert with the provision of medical clinics, provide a stipend to the students for travel and food and support our local team leader. It is our goal to conduct Train the Trainer sessions every other month and support the teams locally.

With two decades of experience working in disaster impacted communities, World Cares Center (WCC) and its team of subject matter experts in the area of emotional resilience, mental health and art therapy, are creating a guidebook for caregivers paired with a coloring book for children from Preschool to 11 years old and a guided journal for young adults 11+.  WCC first published and distributed healing coloring books during the 9-11-2001 relief effort which was  subsequently translated into several languages to help child survivors manage their trauma and grief. World Cares Center is publishing and distributing books and crayons for the children of Ukraine.

You can help: Funds are needed for publication and distribution.

If you would like to donate new 8 count crayons or 10 count markers to be paired with the books, they can shipped to World Cares Center, 520 8th Avenue, Suite 201B, NYC, NY 10018.

Ukrainian Refugees left their homes at a moments notice, some with only the clothes on their backs. Prior to founding World Cares Center, President, Lisa Orloff was a fashion designer. Joining forces with her friends from her previous career, including Dollhouse and Alfred Dunner, World Cares Center is collecting new clothing from the industry and providing seasonally appropriate clothing to those that have none.

You can help: Funds are needed to ship clothing to the shelters and aid centers in the Ukraine.
