More at umc.org/videos Melissa Crutchfield has seen the aftermath of countless natural and manmade disasters. Crutchfield has lived or worked in 25 countries as a representative of UMCOR, the United Methodist Committee on Relief. Her job is to assess the immediate and long-term recovery needs in communities and look for solutions. The 2010 earthquake in Haiti is particularly memorable for Crutchfield. “It was the perfect storm, personally and professionally,” she recalls. UMCOR employees grieved the loss of two key staff members while responding to an earthquake that killed and displaced hundreds of thousands of Haitians. Crutchfield said working one-on-one with Haitians affected by the disaster helped her own healing and reminded her of the important work UMCOR does.
