Here is my understanding of how JWs handle disaster situations: They are directed to take care of only JWs first. Once all the JWs are accounted for and assisted, they will move on to preaching to others in the affected area but not providing any real material assistance to non-believers.
I hope I'm wrong about this. I have been told by some people that my view is incorrect and that JWs are also told to go out into affected communities to provide material assistance to non-believers by providing shelter, water, food, etc. This is, of course, after fellow JWs are taken care of first. Still, I'm told they have an organized plan for helping non-JWs.
Which is true? Please provide evidence either from Watchtower materials, news articles, or, personal experience.
To be fair, I have never helped with JW-organized disaster relief. I have, however, helped "secular" groups with charity work, which has provoked some ridiculous responses from a few JWs, who think we should "keep it all in the family," so to speak.
