The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is the not-for-profit global humanitarian aid organization of the United Methodist Church. UMCOR is working 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 partner organizations and survivors to rebuild their livelihoods, health and homes. In times of acute crisis UMCOR mobilizes emergency supplies, fresh water, and temporary shelter to stricken areas, and then stays as long as it takes to implement long-term recovery. UMCOR workers are known all over the globe for their compassion, leadership, expertise and guidance in recovery efforts.
United Methodist hearts and hands are part of every program imple- mented; school kit, seed, health kit, fresh water and tool distributed in the US and throughout the world; and every new house, well, clinic and school rebuilt after catastrophes of conflict or nature.
Every dollar you give to UMCOR goes to the program you des- ignate. UMCOR is 100% efficient.
