Current Disaster Response
UMCOR and its partners are responding to disasters in the United States every day. Please join us in prayer for the affected areas and consider giving to UMCOR U.S. Disaster Response to support these efforts. View our “Active Response Map” below and check for live updates on how you can assist beyond financial giving.
Tornadoes in Tennessee
In response to the deadly tornadoes and hail storm that tore through Tennessee on March 2, UMCOR is already there working to support our neighbors. UMCOR staff and the conference disaster response coordinator are assessing the damage and immediate needs. Emergency Response Teams are on the ground.
UMCOR has awarded a solidarity grant to the Tennessee Conference in response to the tornadoes to support initial relief efforts. Join us in supporting our neighbors in Tennessee.
Please join us in prayer for the families, communities, United Methodist churches and general agencies impacted by this disaster.
Earthquakes in Puerto Rico
Leaders and staff of the Iglesia Metodista de Puerto Rico and ReHace IMPR report they are working hard to assist those impacted by the many devastating earthquakes that have struck Puerto Rico recently. They are addressing urgent needs, providing shelter, distributing supplies, and conducting assessments and outreach.
UMCOR has awarded a solidarity grant to undergird these initial response efforts. An UMCOR team will be traveling to the island to conduct an assessment and determine how best they can support the MCPR and ReHace in their response efforts.
UMCOR will provide further updates as they become available. For the most up to date information, follow the UMCOR Facebook page.
