Did you know giving to UMCOR allows response for local and global relief?

Giving to UMCOR allows
response for local and

global relief?

When a natural or human-caused disaster strikes inside the United States, UMCOR works with local Annual Conference disaster response ministries to provide financial and physical support. Outside the United States UMCOR serves as the primary channel for United Methodist assistance. In the short term, UMCOR provides financial assistance and in the long term, UMCOR works with local partners toward recovery and reconstruction. Together, we are rebuilding hope in the lives of those in need all over the world.


In response to the devastating global effects of World War II, the 1940 United Methodist Church's General Conference established a relief agency called United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).  This agency was created to respond to the needs of human anguish by working globally to alleviate suffering and advance hope and healing. UMCOR is organized into programmatic areas focused on U.S and international response and recovery, sustainable development, and migration. Each area is founded on the belief that positive sustainable change is best done alongside and in support of communities. UMCOR work is managed through the General Board of Global Ministries.
