Volunteer construction teams repair homes damaged by natural disaster, build public health facilities, and conduct community-based construction training.

IRT has deployed more than 4,000 volunteers to assist victims of disaster, poverty and neglect, and has sent more than $96 million in medicines and supplies to families in desperate need worldwide.
