Last year alone, the Mennonite Disaster Service’s 5,000+ volunteers repaired 252 homes in the United States and Canada that had been damaged by floods, hurricanes, tornados, or wildfires. They also built 66 new homes and 17 new bridges to help people living in disaster-stricken areas get back to their normal lives.
“When I look at the work of the Mennonite Disaster Service,” MDS Executive Director Kevin King wrote in his organization’s 2017 annual report. “I see volunteers and donors, all with different levels of ‘talents,’ yet the same willingness to serve.”
