The WSEAS is a real non-for-profit organization with several acts of donating money, goods, time (see below).
WSEAS efforts are extended to support a charitable cause, usually over an extended period of time and in regard to a defined objective. In a more fundamental sense, the WSEAS philanthropy may encompass any altruistic activity which is intended to promote good or improve human quality of life. The WSEAS does not discriminate people according national, racial, religious, and class differences. WSEAS snuggles all the nations, cultures and religions as you can see below:

Throughout the summer of 2007, a series of massive forest fires broke out in several areas across Greece. The most destructive and lethal infernos raged from August 23 to August 27 mainly in western and southern Peloponnese as well as in southern Euboea, resulting in 68 confirmed fatalities as of September 21. Some of these firestorms are believed to be the result of arson although many proved to be the result of mere negligence. Hot temperatures (three consecutive heat waves of over 40 °C / 105 °F) and drought have made the 2007 summer an especially severe one in Greece. From the end of June 2007 to early September 2007, over 3,000 forest fires were recorded across the nation. According to the World Wide Fund for Nature-Greece, overall these wildfires destroyed a total of 177,265 hectares (438,040 acres). Nine more people were killed in blazes in June and July.

WSEAS offered the amount of 18000 EUR for the Rehabilitation of the ancient Temples "Agia Triada" & "Panagia" in the village Sfaka, Sitia, Lassithi Prefecture, Crete, Greece. In these monuments, constructed around 1500 during the Venetian occupation of Crete, there were several and important Frescos (Wall Paintings) under the Plasters ("Sovas") of the Churches. WSEAS supported financially this project and now these very old frescos (Wall Paintings, Hagiographies) were revealed after the removal of plasters and the visitors can admire works of the early Cretan School. WSEAS is willing to help the world cultural heritage by actions like this. We hope to organize an excursion to this place in one of our next Conferences in Crete.
The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake, was an undersea earthquake that occurred at 00:58:53 UTC (07:58:53 local time) December 26, 2004, with an epicentre off the west coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. The earthquake triggered a series of devastating tsunamis along the coasts of most landmasses bordering the Indian Ocean, killing more than 225,000 people in eleven countries, and inundating coastal communities with waves up to 30 m (98 ft). This was the ninth deadliest natural disaster in modern history. Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, and Myanmar were hardest hit. With a magnitude of between 9.1 and 9.3, it is the second largest earthquake ever recorded on a seismograph. This earthquake had the longest duration of faulting ever observed, between 8.3 and 10 minutes. It caused the entire planet to vibrate as much as 1 cm (0.4 in). The disaster is known by the scientific community as the great Sumatra-Andaman earthquake, and is also known as the Asian Tsunami and the Boxing Day Tsunami. The tsunami occurred exactly one year after the 2003 Bam earthquake and exactly two years before the 2006 Hengchun earthquake. The plight of the many affected people and countries prompted a widespread humanitarian response. In all, the worldwide community donated more than $7 billion (2004 US dollars) in humanitarian aid.

On December 26, 2003 at 5:26 AM local time(1:56 AM UTC) Bam Citadel — "the biggest adobe structure of the world" — and most of the city of Bam proper were devastated by an earthquake. The United States Geological Survey estimated its magnitude as 6.6 on the Richter scale. The BBC reported that "70% of the modern city of Bam" was destroyed. Death toll numbers as high as 80,000 were rumoured on the street and 70,000 reported in the media. However, the total death toll was given as 56,230 on January 17 and the latest estimate from Tehran has halved previous estimates to 26,271 deaths. An additional 10,000 – 50,000 were reported injured, however this number is very uncertain; the most reported number is 30,000, which may have originated from an early Reuters account. According to the Iranian news agency IRNA, the old Bam Citadel was "levelled to the ground". An international relief effort to help the survivors got under way as soon as news of the scale of the disaster reached the outside world. Rescue efforts quickly became a body recovery exercise, with many of the dead being buried in mass graves with the mullahs sanctioning abbreviated Islamic burial rites due to the huge numbers and fear of disease. The high death toll occurred because very few people who were trapped when their mud-brick homes collapsed managed to survive. Rescue workers reported that the collapsing mud-brick structures had completely disintegrated and buried people in piles of earth, rather than trapping them in voids or air pockets between building slabs, as would happen in a concrete building collapse. Those few who did survive being trapped were generally rescued within the first few hours, after being dug out by local survivors, or were trapped in ventilated air pockets. Among the survivors of the earthquake was 97-year-old Sharbānou Māzandarānī, who was trapped in her home for eight days. Rescue workers took three hours to dig her out after sniffer dogs found her. She survived by being under a table near a ventilation pipe.
The international relief effort staged in the earthquake's aftermath helped to thaw relations somewhat between Iran and western countries. Numerous countries (including the United States and UK) sent supplies and search-and-rescue teams including the International Rescue Corps. In February of 2004 Bam was visited by Charles, Prince of Wales, a further indication of the improvement of international relations following the disaster.
