More than 5,400 people volunteered with MDS last year. (

The folks who volunteer with Mennonite Disaster Service are “gettin’ it done.”

We recently published a photo essay featuring Canadian Mennonites who are volunteering with MDS in Texas. Now, you can watch a short video that highlights the work of the Anabaptist disaster response organization.

Last year, more than 5,400 volunteers from churches across Canada and the U.S. gave their time and skills to build 75 new homes, complete 278 repairs, finish 301 clean ups, and build 14 new bridges for households who experienced a disaster.

Anyone interested in volunteering with MDS can find a list of opportunities here.
