In Focus: UMCOR
When people think of the United Methodist Committee on Relief, the image of the UMCOR relief supply kits, or “buckets,” often comes to mind. While the buckets are a tangible way to respond to disaster, I am sure you know our efforts extend well beyond the buckets.
As the humanitarian relief and development agency of The United Methodist Church, UMCOR seeks to transform people and communities in ways that support an abundant life. Compelled by Christ, UMCOR works globally to alleviate suffering and advance hope and healing.
To realize this mission, UMCOR is organized into programmatic areas focused on U.S. disaster response and recovery, international disaster response and recovery, sustainable development and migration. Each programmatic area is founded on the belief that positive, sustainable change is best done alongside and in support of communities.
