GLOBAL DISASTER RELIEF

VOLUNTEER MINISTERS ANSWER THE CALL IN
DISASTERS WORLDWIDE

Volunteer Ministers have provided effective help at disasters around the globe, from hurricanes in Florida to floods in Italy; from Los Angeles riots to bombings in Moscow; and from the Southeast Asian tsunami to bush fires in Australia. No matter the location, the crisis or its severity, Volunteer Ministers have brought their practical and spiritual aid to these disaster sites.
