Project: Worldwide Disasters

Categories: Worldwide Projects | Worldwide Disasters Project

Welcome to the Worldwide Disasters Project

The Worldwide Disasters Project is for profiles of individuals involved in a disaster. This includes those who perished and those who survived. This also includes rescue workers.



Natural and manmade disasters not only shape history but affect the everyday lives of the people involved. The mission of this project is to serve as a memorial to those who were victims of or survived those events. We also want to honor those rescue workers who bravely ran towards danger to save the lives of others.


Current Leader: This project is currently in need of two Leaders. If you are a Leader and are interested in working in this area, please let Julie know!

Project Coordinators: Mary Richardson, Lynette Jester and Sheryl Moore (Worldwide Mining Disasters).

For a full list of participants, see the badge report.
