What does WandAid do?
WandAid aims to empower challenged communities impacted by natural disaster and disadvantage by funding humanitarian aid focused on sustainable economic recovery. We are targeting our fundraising efforts towards smaller, manageable projects that are really making an impact towards the successful recovery of devastated communities and finding long-term self-sustainable solutions.
Alongside this, we use magic to entertain, enhance and promote psychological recovery so that families can rebuild their lives.
To assist the economic and psychological recovery of those communities that have been destroyed by natural disaster, targeting our fundraising efforts towards smaller, manageable projects that are really making an impact towards the successful recovery of devastated communities.
Most recently in March 2016, Jim Carter, Liz Trubridge, Linda Cruse and Richard Pinner visited Nepal on behalf of WandAid and worked with a number of people in Kathmandu to see firsthand the effects of the earthquake and performed several magic shows to bring a smile to the faces of those affected. See Richard and Jim in action here.
