United Methodist Committee On Relief
The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) comes alongside those who suffer from natural or human-caused disasters – be it famine, hurricane, war, flood, fire, or other events—to alleviate suffering and to be a source of help and hope for those left most vulnerable. They provide relief, response, and long-term recovery grants when these events overwhelm a community’s ability to recover on their own. UMCOR also provides technical support and training for partners to address emerging and ongoing issues related to disaster relief, recovery, and long-term health and development.
When disaster strikes outside the US disaster strikes outside of the United States, UMCOR serves as the primary channel for United Methodist assistance. They work with annual conferences, aide organizations, and partnerships around the world, to assist our neighbors locally and globally. Areas of impact focus on specific relief include Disaster Response & Recovery Migration, Hunger & Poverty, Water & Sanitation, Global Health, Creation Care, Women & Children, Sustainable Development.
