World Care has a Free Loaner Program which loans out medical equipment at no cost to community members in need. The equipment that we loan out includes walkers, wheelchairs, bedside commodes, grabbers, toilet risers, crutches, and canes. Any community member in need simply places a request with World Care for an item. Items may be kept for as long as they are required; we simply ask that the item be returned when it is no longer needed so that it may be given to another individual in need.
Computers and advanced technology are an integral aspect of daily, modern life. As a result, World Care strives to provide computers for those populations who might not otherwise have the resources to acquire them. World Care receives tens of thousands of computers from corporations, educational institutions, government agencies, and individuals. After donated computers are received, they undergo a triage process to determine their potential use. Operational units are immediately refurbished by computer engineers.
The computers are then used in building clinics, schools, and other institutions locally and internationally. Those computers not used in humanitarian efforts are also sold to the public at World Care’s thrift store. Additionally, computers deemed unusable are recycled for their plastics, metals, glass, and other parts.
High recidivism rates are attributed to many factors, one of which is the difficulty those recently released from prison face in finding the means to attain self-sustainability. To help combat this problem, World Care provides a stable working environment where those recently released from prison can gain volunteer and work experience.
We also provide opportunities for those in need of completing community service hours through volunteer work. Learn how to become a volunteer.
