In our almost 70-year history, Mennonite Disaster Service has found that volunteers are able to help disaster survivors regain faith and wholeness in their lives. This action, supported by the peace position of the church, is a non-violent way to serve our neighbors. We endeavor, in the spirit of Christian love, to follow Christ's example by giving time, talents, and energies to help relieve suffering caused by disasters.
About MENNONITE DISASTER SERVICE REGION V INCORPORATED
Mennonite Disaster Service project locations provide housing for both short and long-term volunteers as they repair and rebuild homes damaged by disasters. Our paid staff coordinate this response from our offices in Manitoba and Pennsylvania. We host an annual meeting and offer training workshops and seminars throughout the year.
Mennonite Disaster Service has memos of understanding with The Salvation Army, Canadian Red Cross, St. John's Ambulance, Christian Reformed World Relief Committee of Canada, Adventist Development and Relief Agency as well as the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the American Red Cross.
