$50 Provide Healthy Meals in Armenia
Food is a daily challenge for Armenia’s institutionalized children and the elderly. As poverty impacts one-third of the country’s population, many of the nation’s poor are coping with food shortages by reducing the number of meals eaten per day and serving cheaper, less nutritious foods. UMCOR and Foods Resource Bank are providing food security for more than 750 adults and children in six state-run institutions in the Yerevan, Syunik, Gegharkunik and Kotayk regions.
Your gift of $50 will help provide a protein-rich meal for 10 school children or elderly persons through UMCOR’s Cheese Distribution Program.
$100 Send a Girl to School
UMCOR in the Democratic Republic of Congo provides scholarships, uniforms, school supplies and mentoring support for more than 2,000 girls through the Girls’ Scholarship Project. The project helps meet each girl's needs both in her studies and in her home life. Medical assistance and counseling are also provided.
Your gift of $100 can help send a girl to school for one full academic year with uniform and school supplies.
$200 Construct Shelter, Latrines and Wells
Since 2002, over five million Afghan refugees have journeyed home to Afghanistan after living in Pakistan or Iran for more than 20 years. They returned home and faced economic hardship and drought. UMCOR Afghanistan helps people returning home rebuild by helping them construct their own shelters and latrines in the Kabul and Paktya Provinces as well as dig wells.
Your gift of $200 can support construction materials for a returning refugee family to build a home or latrine in Afghanistan.
$300 Help Two Survivors of Trafficking
UMCOR in Armenia assists persons who have been trafficked by providing a safe environment and helping them reintegrate back into society through its Anti-Human Trafficking Program. UMCOR provides medical services, psychosocial support, and legal counseling to help trafficked survivors cope with their trauma.
Your gift $300 can provide clothing and other material goods for two survivors of trafficking.
$6,000 Provide Clean Water for 300 People
UMCOR Sudan supports communities through construction of deep and hand-dug wells in a region where only 30 percent of the total population have access to clean drinking water. Increasing the availability of water not only helps reduce morbidity rates, but also increases girls’ attendance in school, as girls are often tasked with the responsibility of walking long distances to fetch water.
Your gift of $6,000 can help provide clean water for about 300 people.
One Great Hour of Sharing
Gifts to the One Great Hour of Sharing offering underwrite UMCOR's "costs of doing business." That helps us keep our promise that 100 percent of every other gift you make to a specific UMCOR project can be spent on that project-not on home office costs
You can give to One Great Hour of Sharing any time during the year.
