UMCOR volunteers stay
until the work is done?

When a natural or human-caused disaster strikes inside or outside the U.S. your gift helps UMCOR stay until recovery is complete which establishes hope. UMCOR works with local Annual Conference disaster response ministries to provide financial and physical support. Outside the U.S. 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 recover and reconstruction.


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.
