Anybody Can Help – Volunteer Today

The call of the world’s hurting and the hopeless is strong and you are ready to help. Wilcox World Travel and Tours / American Express Representative is a world leader in Humanitarian Aid and Disaster Relief Travel. As your support staff, we allow you to focus on connecting with people who cannot come to you. We focus on the details that make all of the other connections, airlines, hotels, car rentals.

Anybody Can Help

Agencies worldwide need volunteers to provide critical services to needy people. Can you help someone plant a vegetable garden? Researchers in South Africa have found that the combination of key vitamins and minerals can lengthen a woman’s life by 2-3 years if she is infected with HIV. Those extra years with her children are worth everything. Can you help a person write a business plan? Many organizations offer micro loans. With as little as $50, a person in a developing country can purchase goats to breed and for milk, a basic sewing machine and a few yards of material, or beads to make jewelry. Can you tutor a child in math or English? Children are hungry for an education, a chance to better their lives. Those with skills are more likely to get a job.

Humanitarian Aid Agencys

Whether you have skills are just a willingness to help, you can find an agency willing to give you an opportunity to serve. For training in both in the moment Disaster Relief, and ongoing projects, the American Red Cross is a great place to start.

The American Red Cross Depends on Volunteers

Volunteers constitute 96 percent of our total work force to carry on the ARC’s humanitarian work:

Humanitarian Aid Red Cross BusHabitat for Humanity was started by a couple, Millard and Linda Fuller, who, in 1976, decided they had plenty, and took their life in a new direction of service. Today, the organization has provided housing to 1.5 million people, using funds from donations and no-interest loans on the houses they build. Whether you are skilled or merely eager, Habitat for Humanity can use you on location worldwide.

The Fund for Humanity’s mission statement:
What the poor need is not charity but capital, not caseworkers but co-workers. And what the rich need is a wise, honorable and just way of divesting themselves of their overabundance. The Fund for Humanity will meet both of these needs. Money for the fund will come from shared gifts by those who feel they have more than they need and from non-interest bearing loans from those who cannot afford to make a gift but who do want to provide working capital for the disinherited . . . The fund will give away no money. It is not a handout.
