Third Wave Volunteers provide disaster relief and general resilience to those affected by natural and man-made disasters in Florida and around the world by mobilizing first responders in the form of medical and non-medical volunteers. We use sustainable technology in the form of solar lighting and water filtration to help get the job done.
