About WCDR

On September 21, 2018  a tornado left a 20 km trail of destruction across the former township of West Carleton, completely destroying many homes, farms and businesses in Dunrobin & Kinburn. 

From the efforts of volunteers the WCDR has emerged to bring our five largest communities

& our local NGOs together to support the survivors; we are One in Recovery. 

West Carleton Disaster Relief raises funds separately for each event.

The funds are distributed with guidance from those who are affected and 

no overhead or salaries are paid for from your donation.


The Board of WCDR brings together over half a century of award winning experience in community advocacy to provide informed, compassionate, and timely decision making.
