UMCOR Disaster Response Projects
Disaster Response International
General Advance #982450
The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) responds to dozens of unsung disasters every year. When a natural or human-caused disaster strikes outside of the United States, UMCOR serves as the primary channel for United Methodist assistance.This includes supporting refugees fleeing disasters with food, water, hygiene, and other essential non-food supplies and temporary shelter
Disaster Response United States
General Advance #901670
UMCOR responds to natural or civil disasters of such magnitude that they overwhelm a community’s ability to recover on its own.When disaster strikes, it is local churches that provide the first response to their communities. This basic understanding—that disaster response is local—forms the foundation for UMCOR’s US disaster training and response. When responding to a disaster in the United States, UMCOR provides training, financial assistance,expertise, and community collaboration to churches and partners making them more resilient to disasters.
General Advance #3022144
Refugees and migrants are fleeing war, persecution, violence, and other untenable situations in their homelands. UMCOR and Global Ministries are addressing the global refugee and migration contexts guided by four principles: the right to stay and flourish in one’s country of origin; safe passage for those with no viable alternative but to leave;welcoming and belonging, a process where inmigrants, refugees, and receiving communities work together to meet the needs of new arrivals; and support for the returned to help them reintegrate into their home countries after deportation
UMCOR WORLD HUNGER AND POVERTY
General Advance #982920
The primary goal of the project is to provide funding, accompaniment, and technical support to organizations empowering families to sustainably improve their food and nutrition security. The project also develops resources and educational materials to educate and raise awareness within the faith-based community about the issues faced by people who are poor and food insecure and to call people to action to end the systemic injustices of hunger and poverty in the world.
UMCOR WATER, SANITATION & HYGIENE PROGRAM
General Advance #3020600
Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH)are essential for good health and well-being. UMCOR-WASH implements projects through a network of partners in countries that have the highest levels of childhood diseases and death and the least access to basic WASH services. UMCOR and its partners are working on long-term solutions that start with communities’ priorities and agendas. Partners are either national non-governmental organizations or local community-based organizations.
UMCOR WHERE MOST NEEDED
General Advance #999895
UMCOR provides humanitarian relief and disaster response in the United States and internationally. Efforts are targeted in places where natural disasters, war, or conflict have done so much damage that communities are unable to recover on their own. In addition, UMCOR helps communities in the United States and abroad prepare for emergencies and to reduce the risk of disasters through a roster of training programs. UMCOR is also involved in global development work. Specific programs address issues of health, sanitation,poverty, sustainable agriculture, nutrition, and food security. Funds will be applied where most needed
