When natural disasters strike or when an area is gripped by poverty or drug addiction, humanitarian services can be essential. This blog is going to serve as an online primer of things you need to know about humanitarian services. My name is Mary, and I've been volunteering with various humanitarian service initiatives in numerous capacities throughout the last decade.

Welcome, and I wish the best in whatever situation you are dealing with.
