UMCOR’S mission is to alleviate human suffering – whether caused by war, conflict, or natural disaster – with open minds and hearts to all people.
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 responds to natural or civil disasters that are interruptions of such magnitude that they overwhelm a community’s ability to recover on its own. In times of acute crisis we mobilize emergency supplies, fresh water, and temporary shelter to stricken areas, and then stay as long as it takes to implement long-term recovery. Our workers are known all over the globe for their compassion, leadership, expertise and guidance in recovery efforts. You can be connected to UMCOR’s work through volunteering, sending emergency supplies, giving to our programs, and by staying informed about our work and sharing that with others.
SUGGESTED IDEAS FOR INVOLVMENT
Send Relief Supplies such as school kits, seeds, health kits. Organize a relief supply drive at your church and send needed items to UMCOR’s relief supply warehouse, the Sager Brown Depot in Baldwin, La. This is a great way to involve people of all ages in mission.
Volunteer – Volunteers are needed to help sort, pack, and ship relief supplies at the UMCOR Sager Brown Depot in Baldwin La. Volunteers are also needed to help with the disaster recovery. Reconstructionand clean up are two of the biggest jobs after a large natural disaster.
