Disaster Relief--Chile and Colombia

_thumbnail_Colombia_final-2.jpg When the disastrous earthquake shook Armenia, Colombia in January 1999, over 30 local Family International volunteers moved to the affected area to assist the needy and injured for over three weeks. They not only worked hand in hand with governmental and international institutions to help distribute food and basic needs to over a thousand affected people, but they also worked as counselors to bring a message of faith and hope.
