World Central Kitchen In Memoriam Fund

Tax deductible
World Central Kitchen (WCK) mourns the tragic loss of Saifeddin Issam Ayad Abutaha, Lalzawmi (Zomi) Frankcom, Damian Soból, Jacob Flickinger, John Chapman, James (Jim) Henderson, and James Kirby, who dedicated their lives to serving others. These selfless individuals exemplified the true spirit of compassion and courage, and risked their lives daily to provide assistance and relief to those in dire need.

On April 1, the team was hit by an IDF strike on their way back from a food delivery mission. These heroes paid the ultimate price for their service to humanity, leaving behind grieving families who must cope with the loss of their loved ones while struggling with financial burdens. This collective effort is in addition to WCK’s contributions to the families and aims to alleviate some of the financial hardships their families may face as they navigate life without their beloved family members. Funds raised from this campaign will be distributed equally among them.

Your contribution, no matter how small, will make a meaningful impact. By coming together as a community, we help ease their burden during this time of profound grief.

Thank you for your generosity and compassion.
