World’s Children – Comfort after Crisis

World’s Children is a hands-on, grassroots charity, and has been helping orphans and vulnerable children since it was established in 1965. Their mission and goals are to provide support to men, women and children in India, Guatemala and Ethiopia, and provide a way for them to live their lives to their fullest potential through education. Over the past year and a half, the world has been through the greatest crisis most of us have seen in our lifetimes, which includes the children in the 32 orphanages supported by World’s Children. This pandemic has exposed many special needs for many of the orphanages, particularly when it comes to sanitation, food availability and reliable transportation, and as the pandemic recedes our next campaign is “Comfort after Crisis” as the children are returning back to the orphanages and starting school again. 

Lindsay Fox is an MPH graduate of Oregon State University and recently joined the team at World’s Children in June 2021. She spent a big portion of her life living in Southeast Asia, Africa and Central America providing humanitarian services to children and communities in need, and has a deep passion and drive for serving underserved and vulnerable children. Before her time at World’s Children, Lindsay was the development coordinator for The Free Medical Clinic of Greater Cleveland where she worked closely with the chief philanthropy officer and executive director providing support in fundraising, donor relations, and event planning. In addition, she was an HPAC specialist for Americorps in which she supported urban and rural youth in career development to increase affinity for careers in the healthcare industry. Outside of World’s Children, Lindsay is a part time piano teacher and loves to enjoy the outdoors and the beauty that the town of Sisters has to offer. You will most likely find her biking, kayaking or hiking with her dog on any one of the trails in the surrounding area during her free time.
