UMCOR Core Advances


At the core of UMCOR's work are programs that serve the most vulnerable-women and children, people emerging from years of war, conflict, and minorities in vulnerable situations.

The Advances described on these web pages describe programs that are foundational to UMCOR's work. While there are approximately 200 UMCOR-related Advances, these 28 programs represent the bulk of UMCOR's work in the world.

The menu of UMCOR Advances offers a glimpse of these essential giving opportunities within each of UMCOR's program areas. Each link will lead you to information about Advances in UMCOR's six program areas.
