How We Work
In responding to disasters, Lutheran Disaster Response relies heavily on collaboration with other disaster response organizations and church entities. This enables the greatest stewardship of resources and maximum impact of response. Another aspect of how we work is recognizing that every disaster is local. Because of this, every response also needs to be rooted in the local community. In our international work we partner closely with companion churches to make sure local needs are being addressed and met. In the United States, we work through our extensive affiliate network to address these same concerns.
