The good that follows the storm: Catholic Charities USA and disaster relief

Ashenafi Anota, administration and transportation coordinator for Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA), knows how good can come out of disasters.

”I have seen so many volunteers helping at churches and distribution centers,” Ahenafi said. “Even random people who happened to see me at a location have said to me that they would help if we need it.”

Part of Ashenafi’s responsibilities includes delivering the Mobile Response Center (MRC) – a Ford F550 truck donated to CCUSA by the Ford Foundation and outfitted for disaster relief services – to areas in the United States recovering from natural disasters like hurricanes and floods.
