Description

Most disaster relief work and funding takes place through ongoing ministry. UMCOR enters into a disaster at the request of the resident bishop or church partner. The request may be for financial or material resources, technical assistance, volunteers or any combination of resources.Sometimes, however, typical methods of disaster response financing are inadequate. In these situations, special area/conference emergency appeals are issued.
A churchwide appeal may be issued. This is the only situation in which UMCOR can address the issues of church property in disasters.Since 1992, several churchwide appeals have been launched. These include 1992 Hurricane Andrew, 1993 Midwest Floods, 1995 Appeal and Campaign for Africa, 1997 Upper Midwest Floods, 1998 Hurricanes (hurricanes Mitch and George) and 1999 Hurricane Floyd.The Katrina Church Recovery Appeal (# 818-001) was initiated in response to the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
Find out how this appeal is helping to restore mission and ministry in storm-damaged areas, and how you can support these efforts.
