Originally published


UMCOR is assisting International Blue Crescent in reconstructing 19 villages after the 2005 earthquake decimated the area. The project will send five teams trained in earthquake-safe construction techniques to these villages where they will help them rebuild their communities. The program includes male and female social mobilizers to provide additional community support.

UMCOR was able to respond to this need and many others following the earthquake in Pakistan because of the generosity of United Methodists and others. Gifts to International Disaster Response, UMCOR Advance #982450, will help UMCOR to respond to future disasters.


An ongoing drought due to insufficient rainfall over the last four years has contributed to a downward spiral in the quality of life for many in Swaziland. UMCOR is assisting the Methodist Church of Southern Africa as they provide food and basic medical care through local schools. The program will reach approximately 27,000 people with much-needed assistance.

Your gifts to All Africa Drought/Famine, UMCOR Advance #101250 help provide sustenance to hungry people throughout the African continent.
