Disaster Relief

When disaster strikes, the devastation left behind can be more than physical.  We have the opportunity to reach out to those in crisis to demonstrate the love and hope found in Christ through practical and significant acts of kindness, mercy, witness and care and to work side-by-side with those communities to restore them to wholeness.   








                The United Methodist                            Committee on Relief is the                      not-for-profit global                                humanitarian aid                                  organization  of the United                     Methodist Church.  At                           work in more than 80                             countries worldwide,                             including the United                             States, UMCOR's mission,                     grounded in the teachings of Jesus, is to alleviate human suffering—whether caused by war, conflict or natural disaster, with open hearts and minds to all people.  UMCOR responds to natural or civil disasters that are interruptions of such magnitude that they overwhelm a community's ability to recover on its own. 

UMCOR partners with local organizations and survivors to rebuild their livelihoods, health and homes.  In times of acute crisis they mobilize emergency supplies, fresh water, and temporary shelter to stricken areas, and then stay as long as it takes to implement long-term recovery.
