Current Disaster Response
Flooding in East Congo
Our prayers are with the people of East Congo after severe flooding claimed lives, homes, churches, and schools in late April. UMCOR is working with both the North Katanga and East Congo episcopal areas and is offering support to the local disaster management coordinators and volunteers as they respond to urgent community needs. Food such as rice, cornmeal and oil have been distributed to flood survivors.
Taal Volcano Eruption in the Philippines
In partnership with UMCOR, the Manila Episcopal Area Disaster Management Office identified and distributed food and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) needs to those displaced by the eruption in mid-January. Continued coordination and communication in the disaster recovery efforts are ongoing, such as working to restore livelihoods once evacuees return to their villages.
