"When a natural disaster strikes, it can take humanitarian aid programs weeks to mobilize and ship in resources. But what if those resources could already be nearby? That’s where the International Rescue Group (IRG) comes in. Instead of waiting for help to arrive, this marine-based organization mobilizes boaters already in the area who can quickly provide support following a disaster. These first few days of food, water and medicine can save hundreds of people from disease, starvation and infection."
