In a few minutes, your life can be torn apart. Winds, rain, waves or shaking can take away everything you love. War can errupt and completely change the life you once knew.

In the natural disaster cycle, we make sure we are with our neighbors in every stage. CWS programs help people prepare for the worst, making plans and gathering supplies.

Whether its a natural disaster or a humanitarian one, we team up with other responders to meet immediate needs.And when the time is right, we shift our focus to long-term recovery. When people are forced from their homes, we work hard to make sure they have safe and dignified lives.

The road to recovery and safety may be a long one, but no one should walk it alone.
