UMCOR* Responds to Local, National and International Events
*United Methodist Committee on Relief Advance #901670 - U.S. Disaster Relief Fund is on the ground at all US Disasters and this fund helps them wherever disasters strike while Advance #982450 - International Disaster Relief Fund helps UMCOR respond to international disasters around the world.
Disaster response is in focus for the month of September and Hurricane Dorian is an important reminder of UMCOR's U.S. and international disaster response work.
In a recent message, Bishop Thomas J. Bickerton, president of the UMCOR board of directors, said hurricanes Dorian, Harvey, Irma, Maria, Michael and Matthew showed us that storms are now more intense and devastating than ever before, which means those working in disaster response and recovery must become more innovative and creative. This requires additional resources.
We need your intentional and faithful support in order to continue this work, and 100% of your gift goes to the work you designate.
Here is how you can help and how UMCOR is already at work because of past support to U.S. Disaster Relief gifts.
