UMCOR and COVID-19

. 1 min read
You are part of an extraordinary legacy of undauntable human
beings—people of action, people of compassion, people of mercy.

UMCOR was founded by
courageous men and women who did not sit idly by when confronted with World War
II and unprecedented global humanitarian crisis. They took extraordinary action
to do what they could to alleviate human suffering.



As each of us shelters in place to do our part to prevent the
spread of COVID-19, we cannot help but be impacted 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 give compassion and care to others in this time of great need.
Since the start of the novel coronavirus outbreak, UMCOR has been
working with health boards, medical professionals, disaster management
coordinators, and faith leaders to prevent the further spread of this disease.
Now it is clear that the impact of COVID-19 will be far-reaching and demands a
greater response.
Even as you shelter in place, you can be there for
others.
The new UMCOR COVID-19 Response fund will equip partners in the
U.S. and around the world to assist our most vulnerable populations. Grants
from this fund will be disbursed quickly and efficiently to address health
concerns, food insecurity, water and hygiene limitations, and other pressing
needs.

Thanks to everyone for your support of UMCOR (the United Methodist Committee on Relief).
