World Water Day
At the Waiting Women’s Shelter, a condemned building at Old Mutare Hospital in Zimbabwe, there is no running water or working bathrooms. Expectant mothers must fetch water from one of two wells on the hospital grounds. Use this bulletin insert to support hospitals like Old Mutare that have no clean running water or a working sewage system.
Eco Palms
UMCOR partners with the University of Minnesota to build support in the US for the Eco-Palm Project, which provides fair trade palm fronds to churches on Palm Sunday. The project helps to sustain forestry, protect local jobs and helps preserve the livelihoods of small-scale farmers by ensuring fair wages.
Remembering Haiti
As we prepare to mark two years since the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that devastated the nation of Haiti on January 12, 2010, United Methodists and friends everywhere are encouraged to show their solidarity with the people of Haiti by participating in events that commemorate the lives of those impacted by the terrible disaster.
