UMCOR (The United Methodist Committee on Relief) is the humanitarian relief and development agency of the United Methodist Church. Compelled by Christ, UMCOR responds to natural or human made disasters – those interruptions of such magnitude that they overwhelm a community’s ability to recover on its own.
UMCOR maintains a corps of trained disaster response specialists for quick reinforcement of local efforts, and it keeps a supply of relief materials in warehouses for dispatch when and where required.
When disaster strikes outside of the U.S. – whether a natural or human-made disaster – UMCOR serves as the primary channel for United Methodist assistance. UMCOR moves in concrete ways to ease human suffering and do whatever possible to restore normal life
Living Faith UMC offers support to UMCOR at different times of the year as needs arise by collecting money to offer emergency relief. You may also donate directly on the organizations website at anytime. Unlike many agencies 100% of your donation to UMCOR does directly to relief efforts.
