Project Storm Break

Natural Disaster's Worst Enemy!

Help WOCCU Break the Storm Before It Strikes.

What is Project Storm Break?

Earthquakes. Hurricanes. Wildfires. Tsunamis. 

All resulting in loss of life. 

In our world today, natural disasters ravage the communities we serve and the members who live in them, seemingly on a daily basis.

Enter Project Storm Break. 

Project Storm Break is the international credit union and cooperative movement's response to getting ahead of the storm, so to speak in providing relief, volunteerism and technical expertise to get credit union systems and their members, back on their feet, living their daily lives as quickly and seamlessly as possible.

Born out of a CUDE project, from Andrew Davey, Operations Manager at The Co-op Credit Union in the UK, Project Storm Break seeks to be a lasting resource for rebuilding member's lives and training cooperative staff on the right approach to have empathy and provide hope to those in the most need.

The World Council of Credit Unions and The Co-op Credit Union are partnering to convey the vital importance of planning ahead and responding to international disaster relief before it matter where it is. 

Will you help us with this goal? 



Our goal is to raise an annual, ongoing campaign to retain $100,000 USD in our General Disaster Relief Fund to immediately respond to any disaster that strikes in the international credit union movement.
