Category: Disaster Response

Welcome! When Glen and I finished our voyage we felt a strong desire to perform some type of humanitarian service. In Crossing Pirate Waters, you read about how Hurricane Katrina cut short our post-circumnavigation cruising, and we helped my family whose homes near the eye of the storm were destroyed by 21 feet of flood surge. We were so impressed by the work of the Red Cross we decided to volunteer our skills to assist in National and International Disaster Response. Here are accounts of what it is like to travel to world disaster sites with the Red Cross and the challenging, nitty gritty work of making a difference. This may be something you want to consider yourself.
