International Disaster Response

In Peshawar, tents are loaded for transport into Afghanistan for family's displaced by the drought and violence.

When a natural or human-caused disaster strikes outside of the United States UMCOR serves as the primary channel for United Methodist assistance. UMCOR moves in concrete ways to ease human suffering and do whatever possible to restore normal life.

UMCOR works in partnership with Central Conferences of the United Methodist Church and other Methodist bodies, as well as other international relief agencies to implement programs directly in several regions around the world.

UMCOR is able to respond to disasters in areas where there is no United Methodist presence through partner organizations such as ACT Alliance and Church World Service. UMCOR works with both international and local aid organizations to provide the assistance people need to recover from disaster.
