UCM Daily - Tuesday, September 1

UCM Student Worked with Red Cross Ecuador to Prevent Crises

Tully Douce worked with Red Cross Ecuador to manage 2 million people during the Pope's visit.

Tully Douce has always had a desire to help people in developing countries. A senior double majoring in Crisis and Disaster Management and Spanish, Douce followed his passion and returned to Ecuador, where he grew up, to work with the Red Cross.

This summer, Douce helped develop a risk management program with the Red Cross disaster prevention team. This team worked daily to create a plan to prevent national crises.

"I was able to take everything I learned in class and apply it in a country with limited resources," says Douce. "I had to be creative and learn how to problem solve."

Douce used the strategies he and the team developed in several situations, including the Pope's visit to Ecuador, an event that brought more than 2 million people to the area.

"Ecuador's federal government wants to use the team's plans as an example for their entire country," says Terry Butler, director of Missouri Safety Center. "The risk management team will help educate the community on why planning ahead is important."

Douce says his favorite part of the summer was being part of an organization that truly wants to help those in need.

By applying the skills he learned in class to help a developing country, Douce exemplifies learning to a greater degree.
