Dr. Mario Garcia, founder of Crisis Aid Network was honored as One of the Ten Outstanding Young Americans by the U.S. Junior Chamber in 1990 for Humanitarian Service, and as One of the Ten Oustanding Young People of the World, 1990 for Moral & Environmental Leadership. The U.S. Army also awarded him the Humanitarian Service Medal. His efforts in coordinating aid to victims of Hurricane Hugo in Puerto Rico, and sending a plane load of relief food and supplies to Jamaica were inspirational to young leaders he recruited into his crisis aid teams. Through Dr. Mario's leadership, crisis aid teams also conducted an environmental clean up operation in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, and he has also collaborated with other organizations in feeding families in Northeast Africa, as well as providing strategic interventions to women rescued from illegal sexual trafficking, domestic violence, rape, and physical abuse.
