Fleeing war, civil unrest, chronic poverty, climate change and disasters resulting from natural or man-made events, 258 million people are currently part of the largest migration in human history.
Founded in 1940 in response to displaced and vulnerable populations during World War II, UMCOR is committed to continuing its support of refugees, migrants and asylum seekers today.
Roland Fernandes, executive director of UMCOR, shares why.
The scope of global migration and the challenges raised by the mass movement of millions of people around the world presents United Methodists with opportunities for service, ministry and advocacy.
This overview of UMCOR’s global migration work includes places of welcome, food for body and spirit, education, legal help and many more ways that United Methodists serve and support migrants around the world.
