UMCOR works to end hunger and poverty around the world through awareness, advocacy, and action. Through our connection with local churches, partner organizations, and communities, we build awareness of the interrelated problems that face our world and encourage advocacy for the most vulnerable members of every community. UMCOR specializes in solutions that help people become self-reliant. We work in partnership with the communities we serve to put love into action and share hope for all people.
UMCOR's areas of work in global development are sustainable agriculture and food security in conjunction with nutrition, economic and social development, and the cross-cutting issue of water, sanitation and hygiene. UMCOR also partners with fair trade organizations to connect United Methodist consumers to socially responsible products.
