Helping underprivileged children and families around the world through charitable donations.
West Indians Serving Humanity was formed to help underprivileged children and
families around the world through charitable donations of educational materials, clothing (new or gently used), and toys.
Our goal is to make a lasting positive impact in the lives of those we serve.
If you wish to donate educational materials, clothing, toys and other needed items we can arrange for a pickup or you may drop it off at selected locations. Please feel free to contact us by email or phone (please click on the "contact" button).
Support for our outreach activities is obtained by partnering with communities in the United States and through fundraising ventures, direct sponsorship and donations of cash and kind.
Every aspect of our work is done in a sprit of compassion and respect for all irrespective of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or national identity. We are guided by one simple truth: 'Service to man is Service to God'.
