Disaster Response

“We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not given to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed” (2 Corinthians 4:8-9).

The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) provides long-term recovery as well as immediate relief. Recognizing that disasters cause disruptions that can last for years and often create permanent changes in people's lives, UMCOR works within a community to address the long-term effects of a disaster and assist people in rebuilding and adjusting to change. The United Methodist Church responds by sending Volunteer Teams to help rebuild communities and individuals' lives for as long as it takes.
