13 delegates from Hope Bridge (희망브리지 전국재해구호협회) came to our office last Tuesday, April 23rd. Hope Bridge is a Disaster Relief Association in Korea and has been serving their community since 1961. They reached out to HandsOn Sacramento last month because of their interest in what we do for disaster recovery and relief. HandsOn Sacramento, together with representatives from American Red Cross Gold Country Region and City of Sacramento, introduced the importance of having a VOAD in our community. Also included in the presentations are Southern Baptist Disaster Relief Ministries and Sacramento Medical Reserve Corps. We are grateful to have this exchange of ideas and knowledge on disaster relief and recovery happen.
