CWS flood response in Missouri: Debra Tarver Monday, June 27, 2011
Donna Derr, director of development and humanitarian assistance for CWS, tells an audience at the Brookings Institution that the best defense is to develop plans that will help make us more risk averse.
The village of Pinhook, Missouri, was devastated when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers diverted the overflowing Mississippi River to control flooding. Debra Tarver is trying to help her community recover. CWS is helping her learn how.
CWS works with partners to eradicate hunger and poverty and to promote peace and justice around the world.
