United Methodist Committee on Relief

Where We Work

UMCOR uses a series of criteria to determine if and where field offices will be established, including:

  • There is an established need for UMCOR in the country (e.g., UMCOR’s presence will fill an existing gap).
  • The need corresponds to a program area in which UMCOR has expertise.
  • Sufficient funding through private and public donors is available to establish and maintain the office and programming in the country.
  • A local United Methodist congregation or organization has invited UMCOR to work with it in a particular aspect of humanitarian relief or development.
