As I stood on the street and watched my home go up in flames, I was grateful that my family escaped unharmed, but I instantly began worrying about what we were going to do to recover from the disaster. Sure, we had some insurance, but it wasn't going to be enough to cover the cost of replacing the home and all of our belongings. The first problem to solve was figuring out where we were going to sleep and live for the next several weeks. That was when a wonderful woman from a humanitarian service approached me. It was that moment that I learned what these groups do for everyone in our community and around the world. Visit my blog to learn more about humanitarian services in your area and around the world.
