WORLDWIDE: HELP DISASTER SURVIVORS

As relief workers determine the long term effects of the West Sumatra earthquake which killed 704 people, and as thousands of people in the Philippines learn to cope in overcrowded and unsanitary evacuation centers, UMCOR is hard at work helping survivors affected by disasters in the Philippines, the South Pacific, and Indonesia by providing them with the most basic needs.

UMCOR's field offices are bringing relief to affected communities, and are working to develop long-term recovery plans to assist in rebuilding.
