Water, sanitation and hygiene, known together as WASH, are essential for good health and well-being. Global Ministries supports WASH programs worldwide, providing direct help through UMCOR and supporting the work of partners.
Lack of access to healthy and nutritious food is a major factor in starvation and malnutrition. UMCOR works with partners to improve agricultural methods, increase crop diversity and yields, expand market access and boost nutrition in vulnerable communities.
The Creation Care program looks inward at the work of UMCOR and Global Ministries and outward at the ministries of The United Methodist Church to equip the church to address modes of living that contribute to climate change and environmental degradation.
