very proud we were able to act together with our partner LOG very quickly, mobilize resources with support from German and US businesses and our funding sources. It enabled us in reaching flood victims within hours from the disaster and to continuously contribute to efforts by German Government and civil society organizations.“, says IMC's Emergency Response Team Leader in Western Europe, Marin Tomas.
