What to know about STMs and Disaster Relief
It seems that one natural disaster hardly leaves the news before another one happens. It’s easy to forget that it can take years for people to recover from disasters. We talk with Karen Carr from Convoy of Hope about how to be ready to help others after a disaster in your area and how to be ready to help others when the disaster happens elsewhere. Short-term teams can be a great way of partnering for the long-haul!
