DM12 is a volunteer service commitment to communities impacted by natural disasters. This initiative is built on 15 years of disaster relief experience, and designed to make it safer for volunteers to work with us during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to many safety measures we have implemented, we support, train and cover the expenses of participants.
