This year we witnessed a number of devastating, record-breaking natural disasters sweep across the United States and the world. With each event, the Red Cross and its partners worked tirelessly to provide relief to the affected communities.
We’ve captured some photographs to help tell the story of what so many families experienced this year. Although some say a picture is worth a thousand words, these images only tell a small part of the story. The rest lies with those who were directly impacted, as well as the volunteers who responded when help was needed the most.
