Mennonite Disaster Service is a volunteer network of Anabaptist churches that responds in Christian love to those affected by disasters in Canada and the United States.  While the main focus is on clean up, repair and rebuilding homes, this service touches lives and nurtures hope, faith and wholeness. In 2019, nearly 5,500 volunteers, including about 850 Canadians, donated their time, skills and compassion to restore and rebuild homes, bringing more than 600 people back home after a disaster.
