Mennonite Disaster Service (MDS) is a volunteer network of Anabaptist churches that responds in Christian love to those affected by disasters in Canada and the United States. While the main focus is on clean up, repair and rebuilding homes, this service touches lives and nurtures hope, faith and wholeness. Our programs, funded by contributions, aim to assist the most vulnerable community members, individuals and families who, without assistance, would not have the means to recover. MDS volunteers — women and men, youth and adults — provide the skills and labor needed to respond, rebuild and restore.
The West Coast Mennonite Men's Chorus has chosen to support the MDS efforts to rebuild homes destroyed by the recent horrendous fires in California, especially in Lake County.
The links below illustrate the work of MDS as they deliver the message of Christ in a very practical way to families devastated by fire and flood in California and throughout the United States.
