Who We Are : Peace Winds America [cached]

Peace Winds America was founded in 2008 by Dr. Charles Aanenson, who brings over 35 years of experience in the field of international aid and development, including leadership positions with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Ford Foundation. During his post at the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo, Dr. Aanenson identified a critical gap in disaster preparedness and humanitarian assistance in the Asia Pacific. While many organizations provide disaster relief in this region, there is great need for better planning and collaboration to reduce the impact of natural disasters and to promote long-term sustainability for affected populations. Dr. Aanenson founded PWA to address these urgent needs.
