Currently Responding to Hurricane Dorian

On the ground before, during, and after

We mobilize our disaster relief volunteers and our network of local and global nonprofits, corporate, church, and logistics partners when disasters strike.

Thousands of communities around the world are affected every day by natural disasters, disease outbreaks, and conflicts. This leaves the most vulnerable people in urgent need of help to survive and recover. Historically, those with a background of working in a country alongside local communities are best suited to support relief efforts quickly and efficiently.

Acting fast before, during, and after an emergency and collaborating creatively with diverse partners has meant we can assist the vulnerable when some of the greatest disasters strike. 

We also build the capacity of our local staff and volunteers to respond quickly and efficiently and work with impacted communities to help them build back better and become more resilient. 

Project Goals
  1. To protect the vulnerable following disasters
  2. To mitigate further or secondary disasters
  3. To provide access to clean water where needed
  4. To help impacted communities build back better
Expected Outcomes
  • Reduced risk of human trafficking
  • Reduced likelihood of a second disaster striking due to contaminated water, like a cholera outbreak
  • Strengthened resiliency in the impacted community

Making Things New

When other organizations were shutting down and pushing pause on current work, World Hope did not close. We did the opposite. Our doors remained open and our staff pivoted in strategy to find a way to address COVID.

Spending of World Hope International (Canada) funds is confined to Board approved projects. Funds designated towards a project are used as designated, with the understanding that when the need for that project has been met or cannot be completed for reasons determined by the Board, the remaining funds designated will be used where needed most.
