As each of us shelters in place to do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we cannot help but be affected by the scale of illness, death and financial distress all around us. We could even be led to believe that this is a hopeless situation. But, thank God, that is not true!
Together, we can care for each other in this time of great need.
Since the start of the coronavirus outbreak, UMCOR has been working with health boards, medical professionals, disaster management coordinators and faith leaders to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus. Partners in China, Africa and the Philippines have already received solidarity grants. Training materials have been developed and disseminated in four languages to facilitate online trainings focused on preparedness and prevention.
The impact of COVID-19 is far-reaching and demands an even greater response.
Even as you shelter in place, you can be there for others.
Through the COVID-19 Response Fund, UMCOR plans to release grants to equip partners who assist vulnerable populations around the world impacted by COVID-19, including racial/ethnic and indigenous communities in the United States. Grants of up to $20,000 will be awarded and disbursed quickly and efficiently to address pressing needs in the areas of health, food insecurity, water, sanitation and hygiene and economic instability.
When you say “yes” to supporting the UMCOR COVID-19 Response, you will help embody God’s love for those who need it most.
