Principles of Partnership for Work Teams

We send work teams because an invitation has been extended to us to come and help with the witness to recovery in a particular part of the world or the United States.

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance only sets up recovery sites where churches have decided toinvite others in to help as they seek to rebuild after disasters. Thus it is the local church partner,council, or faith based organization that has done the assessment, determined the nature of thework, and made all of the arrangements to provide for the arrival of volunteers.
