I just returned from my monthly meeting with an ad hoc organization of NGOs that provide services and support to victims of disaster.

This group has been working together for more than 10 years and represents a wide cross-section of NGOs both faith based and secular. I am always amazed by the level of respect and cooperation that exists within this group. They have set aside the differences, overlaps and competition to focus on being ready to help when help is needed.

Not only is there a great deal of cooperation among the NGOs, they have also included various Governement Departments or government agencies to participate in their good works.

Its this level of cooperation and familiarity that will serve us well when a real crisis strikes.
