'Superstorm' Sandy: Your stories
Epitome of a Volunteer
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
I was in Long Beach, New York this weekend where I came across an amazing story of a volunteer. Burama Diba, from Gambia, was visiting his brother on vacation in Seattle. He saw the news of Hurricane Sandy and its devestation. Instead of enjoying his 2 week vacation, he took the initiative and found his way to New York to help first hand. He was volunteering with the organization Humanity First USA. His story inspired me to make this iReport. I hope it inspires others to volunteer. Video by Muhsin Shahid, Editing by Ahmad Chaudhry.
