United Methodist Committee on Relief

The United Methodist Committee on Relief is an organization dedicated to alleviating human suffering around the globe. UMCOR’s work includes programs and projects in disaster response, health, sustainable agriculture, food security, relief supplies, and more.

UMCOR’s work reaches people in more than 80 countries, including the United States. We provide humanitarian relief when war, conflict, or natural disaster disrupt life to such an extent that communities are unable to recover on their own.

While UMCOR cooperates with other aid organizations to extend our reach, our most important partners are the people we serve. We are confident that successful solutions to emergency or chronic conditions begin with the affected population. UMCOR provides these survivors not only temporary relief but long-term education, training, and support.

For 75 years, UMCOR has been serving as the hands and feet of Christ bringing relief to a world in need of hope. Founded in 1940 as a small committee whose goal was to respond to widespread suffering experienced in World War II, UMCOR became the voice of conscience among Methodists in response to such hardships.
