Humanitarian work is another kind of service, and this is well exemplified by Lotta Hitschmanova, who came to Canada as a refugee in 1942 and founded the Canadian branch of the Unitarian Service Committee, still active today. This is her uniform.
Disaster response is another humanitarian work, and the response by many Canadians to the Haiti quake of 2010 is examined here. Displays include items connected to Canadians on the ground during the aftermath of the quake.
