Your gifts are urgently needed for UMCOR's International Disaster Response, Advance #982450-8 to enable UMCOR to respond to the emergencies and disasters people are facing in many parts of the world. UMCOR has sent small grants this week to the Republic of Georgia and Pakistan. Youth in Georgia who had been displaced by the civil war were displaced again in April by an earthquake. The youth house in Georgia is providing additional psychological assistance and recreational and educational activities for these youth. People living on the border of Pakistan and India are suffering because of the daily conflict and fighting in the area. Many have had to flee their homes. UMCOR funds are providing medicine and food for 137 families. Funds are needed to enable UMCOR to respond to the catastrophic flooding in China, the earthquake in Iran, and flooding in the Northern Caucausus region, Nicaragua, and Chile. Please give to Advance #982450-8, International Disaster Response.

Gifts may be made through local United Methodist Churches, or by calling (800) 554-8583. Credit card donations are accepted. Click here to make a secure online gift. (Read more about how you can help UMCOR's emergency responses.)
