UMCOR stays course in mega-disaster relief

What happens after the headlines die down? Are there still relief efforts after the newspapers no longer write about it? Do we really still remember, or care, about what is going on in the disaster stricken areas of the world? The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) answers with a resounding and faithful "YES!"

I applaud the Red Cross and United Way, and the hundreds of other organizations dedicated to helping people in need. However, they are dedicated to more of a "first aid" approach; which is absolutely necessary! UMCOR takes part in the initial relief effort of natural disasters, plus stays until all people have been taken care of.

Another reminder,100% of the money donated to UMCOR reaches those who need it!

Just because we don't read about it in the headlines anymore doesn't mean there aren't still thousands upon thousands of people still in need of our help!
