Volunteering

What do our volunteers say? click here

 

Our volunteers come from all walks of life, all backgrounds, colours, races, religions and nationalities. They include office workers, businessmen and women, shop owners, healthcare workers and more, and come from across the UK, from Edinburgh to Fife, Glasgow, Lancashire, West Yorkshire and London.

Our volunteers help in many ways, from donating money to buying urgent aid items to providing crucial manpower on the ground in our aid destinations.

We are constantly looking for volunteers to help and encourage you to join us here in the UK and abroad.

Why volunteer

One of the greatest gifts you can give is the gift of life and hope. Volunteering lets you make a difference where someone needs help, saving lives and giving hope.

As a volunteer with World Care Foundation, you can help the most needy and desperate by distributing food to the hungry, sending containers of aid items and providing medical items such as incubators to Syria. As a volunteer you will save lives and spread hope.

Where to volunteer

At home

Sometimes you can’t get away from life to volunteer on the ground; and that’s okay with us. Our volunteers at home provide much-needed cash to help us buy food and urgent aid items like sleeping bags, blankets, gloves, etc. They raise funds or volunteer their time to organise initiatives to help refugees. Our volunteers at home are crucial to our mission: helping humanity and spreading hope.

Contact us if you want to get involved at home.

On a mission abroad

The manpower our volunteers provide on the ground is crucial for the implementation phase of our aid missions. They help distribute food, construct tents, help refugees cross difficult terrain, assist women and children with various needs, carry disabled and injured refugees from one location to another, and so much more. Our volunteers on the ground provide invaluable assistance to refugees who are in desperate need, as well as offer emotional support during a difficult journey.

Contact us if you want to volunteer on an aid mission.
