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. I've noticed places where people seem to have a lot of questions so I decided to create a blog on everything from identifying need, to setting up donation drives, to finding nonprofits and government organizations that provide humanitarian services. Welcome, and I wish the best in whatever situation you are dealing with.
