Over the past week all of us have been touched by the
devastating images and stories coming from the areas affected by Hurricane
Katrina. At NPCA we have been following developments closely and have
received messages from the Peace Corps family with information on how we as a
community can respond.
Peace Corps has asked us to let you know that they
are mobilizing the Crisis Corps, and they ask that RPCVs update their
information. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) disaster manager
Karen Keefer (Nigeria 66-68) has asked me to put out the call to the Peace Corps
community that FEMA is looking for returned Peace Corps volunteers interested in
deploying to the South as paid FEMA "disaster reservists."
these and other ways you can help can be found on our Web site, where we've
created a page with hurricane relief information.
We will be continually
updating this page as more information becomes available, so be sure to visit it
often. The page is linked directly from our home page at http://www.rpcv.org, or
